NextGen Quiet High Endurance Heavy Lift MultiRotor

Hi there friendly people of DIY Drones

I've been using and building drones for a few years now, and general shortcomings, I find are: noise, flight time, payload capacity, waterproof space for sensor and computing additions. These shortcomings of course all have good reasons to be there.

Some of the things I've done in the past are: made a really big rig (2m span) that's capable of…
