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.

    • TP searching, finding, sending, retrieving, archiving are not functions of AI. Using a voice recognition "personal assistant" to do them is...when you type in "phone" and it starts to give you suggestions that change as you continue to type, that is AI (and these are increasingly user specific). The issue is when the AI in the personal assistant with an open mic catches "keywords" like gun, Christ, flat tax,freedom...then gets good enough to do "key phrases" like " I don't care if they pass that law I'm not turning in my gun, they don't even know about the S&W..." then archives them under your personal record that while not " ...containing individual personal info ..." On your identity has all the info stored in pieces unconnected so as to not be an actual "identity" but a few keystrokes from it. When you are being Phished, Catfished, targeted, or engaged by these (and you are....those clumsy emails and ads) they can argue that it is an attempt to better serve you as a consumer. The real issue is the use of the data and info gleaned, gathered, or stolen by these AI programs and those who have it.... The FBI has already attempted to subpoena audio from open mics on Google products, now I know as a LEO you can see the advantage of access to these to stop criminals, rescue stolen children, catch drug dealers and rapists....but as the saying goes "we can't throw out the baby with the bath water" or "start down that slippery slope" and if we " wait to burn that bridge when we get to it" we will be on the wrong side with no way back...and " up {#^+ creek without a paddle"....
    • I can remember phone booths and dropping a dime, rotary dial phones and  real operators who actually connected your call and person to person long distance.  I can also remember when prefixes came in before we had numbers like Lincoln 5-5555 exchanges.  I am starting to feel like I need a shot of geritol LMAO
    • I well remember the quizzical looks from younger police officers, in several classes I was teaching. I spoke of having a “knife fight in a phone booth”, and got crickets and thousand yard stares. Then I found (after lunch), online photos of phone booths with sliding doors, and also had to explain the term, “dropping the dime”, to them.  AI can be a wonderful thing, IF, used correctly.  Alas, it will not ever be used for good. The good old days, just got a lot more distant.....
    • that my friend is just not a pretty picture...sigh
