  • Preposterous (a word you don't actually get to use very often, thank you for the opportunity).

    I'm sorry, but to make these claims here without any significant substantiation is hog wash.

    99.999999% - really, I'm sure my snake oil does that too.

    And  29" props - 8 of them do actually not make a good handling multicopter, they are slow to spin up and respond and generally result in a wallowing mess with wind and gust response.

    Which is why all the hoopla on multis with big props died down quite a while ago.

    Basically this thing would be the heavy lift dump truck of the skies.

    It is pretty, but as to being FAA certifiable, I will believe it when one is issued and I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Also, I am completely unaware of any sort of UAS certification by the FAA that actually blanket permits the kind of exemptions spoken of by the author.

    It may be an interesting if obese multicopter, but the article itself is total Bull.

    Here is a link to their web site which basically reiterates the (information????) presented here.


    This would have been much more appropriate on April 1.

    Full body armor with lead underpants, because it needs a nuclear reactor handy to charge it! ;-)

    expanding its operational capabilities beyond those of any other commercial unmanned aircraft

    what operational capabilities does this craft have that other X8 craft do not have ? How do you know that it is the case for "any other" craft ?  

  • I suggest to simply discard & drop this topic from here for now - just like that - or move it to flying saucers.

  • Interesting.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_availability#Percentage_calculation  (to those wondering what this means)

    Class 7 is incredibly impressive given that Google servers or 4G service providers/telcos are typically rated for "5 nine's" (and we all know how much we're depended on those items).

    (I have gone through airworthiness on experimental aircraft. Mainly a long process (couple years) and much more stringent than any 333 operator's manual for instance).

    High availability
    High availability (HA) is a characteristic of a system, which aims to ensure an agreed level of operational performance, usually uptime, for a higher…
  • @Tom (and others) the 99.9999999% reliability number is a different way of saying a failure rate of 10^-9 per hour, the rate required by the FAA for an Airworthiness Certificate, as Rob mentioned part of the process we are going through is a rigorous analysis of all the components we are using in order to prove we meet that reliability standard at the system level.

    @Greg we are working with the FAA now, an Airworthiness Certificate basically means that we operate as an aircraft not as a sUAS, meaning we have to meet all the same standards they do, but this comes with advantages, like no restrictions on flying over people and the ability to carry more than the payload allowed for sUAS, we plan on being able to operate in /moderate rain (4mm/ hour) for an unlimited duration, and around 15mph wind.

    As for the charging we plan on delivering 4 1000w chargers that are dual voltage so you can plug them into 4 house circuits or one big drop, whatever you like.

    @Dwgsparky it is a common misconception that a reliability rate of 10^-9 means that we could fly for a 100,000 years that is definitely not the case our aircraft has required maintenance every 200 flight hours, it means that if we fley a billion of our craft at the same time for an hour on average 1 would suffer a catastrophic failure (e.g. would fall from the sky)

  • Yeah.  Great.  How much?

  • @JB Consider putting on  a fill suit of armor at all times and the assault drones wont get you. :)

    Rob is correct (almost) 

    to charge at 4000W requires 34 amps plus the losses in the charger so 37amps is a reasonable approximation at 120volt, using a 220volt supply will require 18amps plus losses so 21-22amps.

    Not exactly a portable solution or you need a big size generator to carry about.

    Its interesting to see the fantasy reliability prediction. (also totally nonsensical.)  it all depends on the basis of the calculation. 

    if they have 1 failure (crash) in 1 million flights then they should stop flying in case the next flight fails reducing the reliability to 2 in 1 million.

    OR if this is a MTBF calculation then the 30 or more critical components must be SOOOO good as to be almost unimaginable, can you imagine trying to buy a motor/controller/propeller/battery that will not fail for more than 30million flights @ 30mins each so more than 15 million hours (approx 1700 YEARS if flying continuously).  

    yep , pure fantasy. 

  • I think we should give EDS a chance.

    Have you begun the process of getting an FAA airworthiness certificate? What does that mean? Can you give a link to this criteria?

    I'd like to know: 1. Is the drone waterproof and 2. What is the maximum operational wind speed?

    Too bad it's so heavy, anything over 20kg (with payload) in the UK is going to be a nightmare. Also could do with more of this sort of info on your website: http://www.enterprisedronesolutions.com
