    So here is my short vid, i crashed somewhere in the middle and landed under a chair so there is a moment of like 30seconds where you see nothing.

    Always trim first, and enjoy watching :)



    P.s. I had some prior experience flying drones

    Toy. Not device, it's a toy..and it was a joke so why be so bothered by it? Did you really expect a full blown drone from a startup firm?

    I expect it to have a hydrogen fuel cell that powers it for three weeks from 10ml of sea water.

    Edit : Just realised the sea is 30 miles away.. hmm is the river thames salty?

    That would be awesome. The reason Hydrogen fueled cars were halted is due to the high explosion risk during a collision, the technical knowledge however have been laying around for more then a decade..

    You know the main problem with the green agenda is that they are thinking on a large scale.

    Forget the big wind farms, and off shore wave machines, put micro wind generators alongside roads and motorways, and micro water generators down the drains.

    Don't forget that companys like shell and bp and many others try to halt green energy and technological development to make as much profit from fossil fuels as long as they can..

    shell and bp et al are exactly the companies tht should be looking into these new energy streams because there product has a limit before it is gone.

    The sooner they come up with petrol derived from an abundant renewable source that doesnt upset the "feed the poor before giving the west petrol" people the better, because I plan on keeping my current 8 mpg (around town) for a very long time :)
