Survival drone as a BOV ?

2 posts in this topic

Autogyro or Gyrocopters and little wing autogyro's are better and have an auto rotate feature in case you loose the engine.

A drone is overhead and easily land on you and mincemeat the operator not much about it made me feel I would like to try it.

figure you need to haul double your weight in gear you can with a larger design but I cannot see this in a drone ( price wise)

a gyro copter can move on its own / pusher prop and it can be steered and some blades can be parked  so they are not rotating folded back.  short take off etc design is everything and all the parts are available online. 

 

I recall some years back a gyro boat to hop the many lakes in Canada Michigan etc.  operated it like a hang glider with a push pull bar.

 

A Paraglider is also an option and it can lift more than just a persons weight but it has merit weight and size broken down you can fly quite a while and it will fly on thermals and there is more but that is for the reader of this to figure out for themselves

 

My idea and I am not sure it is feasible was to use a diesel motor but I doubt unless some real engineering was involved because of the RPM differential etc etc but a diesel would be better as gasoline today is crap and does not last in storage even with fuel stabilizer.  Diesel can use bio oil and deisel can be stored many years with the right stabilizer for your region.

 

The exhaust can be directed to help with counter rotation or to distort sound (direction) and this can fly very low or

if it is like other X craft ceiling 18,000 but that is a rule common sense fuel winds weather and O2 means couple thou.

 

a change to a belt taking off the pusher blade and you could power a saw blade lift station pump your imagination and weight of implements is the only limit IMHO.

    • Watching the news (really should avoid that)  but they are using Ketamine as an antisuicide medication and the user says it keeps her from committing suicide DUH and chronic pain does not make a person suicidal ?  I have friends that have had multiple surgeries to stop chronic pain some with no success or limited success. I for one feel the AMA and the FDA use less than scientific methods and allow certain doctors much more leeway to function everything can be addictive there are people who are addicted to eating laundry soap some people cut themselves or body dismorphia. IMHO it is reasonable to suspect a person is overusing medication when request for refills mount or their blood test show higher amounts than normal so we have controls I guess using an ID to track will help. Better living through chemistry I believe in it not as abuse of a drug but use to control pain and allow people to have a life, Ketamine if it is useful use it I do not see a problem with pot for people with life threatening diseases I do think as other drugs we cannot totally trust doctors because some will prescribe without care just for the money and there need to be limitations on operating vehicles people need relief but do not need to endanger others IMHO.
    • True forgot about them well really on purpose cause they are FRIGGIN' HUGE. I liked the Coonan as it was a 1911 style and not that HUGE..... I should have stated I wanted them to build one more affordable and more of them.
    • I, ah....ahem....used actually was ISSUED a sap after my law enforcement rookie probation period, and ordered to have it on my person while in patrol. Used a few times with great effect, still have it...somewhere around here, I'm sure. Have a couple of grandsons that are "into" paracord projects. Sent them a jig and oodles of paracord, along with one inch diameter steel balls, for "key fonts, for each of the adults I. The family. About half are finished, so I'll pick them up in June. Never can tell when a key fob will be needed....
    • They make .357 Magnum Desert Eagles.
