regions for meteorites. I've been kicking around ideas to myself for
applications of what I guess ya'll call UAV's.
I know real planes better than RC's. I've been told for years to do
something in miniature and came to the conclusion that full size costs
about the same for that project, or so I thought. It has become
intriguing that I may have discounted a very important area.
After seeing a video of someone flying a chopper very erratically got
me to thinking. I almost built a custom ultra light to explore the
desert and or scheming on how to make my own Aerial maps cause every
time I get close they seem to not exist. Why risk your life when you
could just cry if your toy crashes?
I'm open to directing me to what questions I should be asking, as
crazy as that sounds, on what I guess is a research probe.
What is .60 ? I MUST be rusty , a real plane is what? 30' wing span
and .60 of that isn't 5' it would be more like 18'.
There must be a huge road block that IS out there , and I'm guessing
regulations/laws/politics other than $ , time & info. When does a
model become real? Has anyone assessed the damage 911 did? What would
happen if one had a 10' Dia. chopper and flew it around town or just
over BLM/gov't/our land? I suppose you'd have to carry a transponder
after a certain size , no? Laws not written yet? Big time restricted
air space? Why, if so? You have to risk your life and endanger a
whole building instead of a single car to fly legally remotely?
I read the thread about cargo back in Dec. today and it doesn't make
since , 3HP little motors and can't lift much , should. What are the
limits on size of off the shelf parts? I take it that most metal
parts are pot metal and made in Asia , does anyone make their own
chopper 'heads?' I'm sure the fixed wing is the way I'm thinking, but
30,000 parts flying in formation and not risking your life sounds like
What if you use them for home land security instead of thought of as a
threat? Oh, I guess I was the only one who thought that model rocket
plant fire wasn't an accident right after 911.
