Yeah saw that when it first came out, pretty much anything with the word drone, UAV, or quadrocopter gets forwarded to me by everyone I know
As per my usual response, that scout is more than a little pathetic, and once again easy competition.

My latest project has been making great progress, and after meeting with some folks at a certain bay area space company, a special flavor of it might be riding a rocket to our favorite planetary nightlight.


At current rates, September will be a reasonable deadline to begin pre-orders, I think you'll really like what it's capable of. It's an imaging system, not a UAV, by the way.

I also never get tired of this video.

Well it's clearly a hybrid pneumatic system. The question is, does it operate under pressure or vacuum?

The real question is... does 'vacuum' actually exist?

That's awesome. I bumped up the levels in photoshop and I'm still not sure what I'm looking at, but I think I have a general idea.

It's nothing too complicated, if you'd like I can fill you in via PM, more so on the mission than what I'm doing, it's very cool stuff.

Also some nice high quality footage in this video.


First couple of minutes of this one is good, the guy has got to be scaring the crap out of the people in those houses.

Loved those last 2 videos. Jets are so amazing and flying low like that seems really fun and really illegal.

That's a very slick looking scanner, too bad they won't state the resolution.
