  • Just wait until an Airplane with a prop out front decides to kamikaze a baby stroller. It really doesn’t matter whether it is a multi-copter or heli - anything in the air can do some serious crowd damage in the blink on an eye. Even if the prop is in the back of the plane or covered a nosedive from 30-50 feet can do significant damage to a crowd in a hurry. To be safe, flying bot competitions need to be held somewhere away from a crowd. Take a look at the safety regulations for the AMA or Aerial Robotics Competition.

    Autonomous flying objects of any sort are potentially dangerous IMHO. Especially the ones I build ;-)

No public wish lists :(
