Manned drone with hybrid tech!
used an engine to run a generator that then powers the motors... a backup LiION pack provides 5 minutes of backup power should the engine fail... plus it has a parachute.

I dont get it. If you still need a petro engine what is the advantage? Surely someone could autonomously control a standard run of the mill heli we have had for 60 years if they tried.Team Synergy, Team FBL Rotors-------if its not broke...it will be!

Failsafe for one thing and it is a more efficient way of getting energy out of petrol, or so I've heard. Another thing you could do is take off and land in electric only mode to keep noise levels down but im guessing the generator isn't all that noisy anyway. Multi rotors are more compact so can fly in smaller areas, they are more stable and have far less mechanical complexity.
60% of the time, it works every time!

If you want long runtimes, petrol is the way. Batteries are not there yet because of the weight.

I thought of building a coax heli with hybrid tech. Was thinking of a sportbike engine ( good power and reliability and low weight ) and generator. Same as them, enough battery to land if the engine should have a problem.
But also a coupling or clutch to engage the engine to the rotor should the electrics fail.
Never thought of a parachute but didn't think of flying high enough for that to be effective.

Ballistic parachute should do the trick at altitudes of 100 feet or more.
I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Looks unstable to me and I don't like the idea of flying around in something that is not aerodynamic in the least. I also don't trust batteries. Especially Lithium batteries.Delayed Response Operator Not Engaged

I think its pretty cool, but 'maned drone' is a bit of an oxymoron. wouldn't 'personal aircraft' a better description ?!boo!

I'm up with TMore here, rule of thumb #1, you don't fly in something cheap, remember Jurassic Park, "just because you can doesn't mean you should"Jim

Yes, however it does have autonomous capability. And that is the goal. To fly with either a pilot or by itself ... therefore it’s a drone in once instance and a piloted multi-rotor in another. For the sake of expediency what would you them call such a craft that carries a person but flys without their input then ?showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

yes, and in knowing an autonomous truck killed it's fist victim just some 4 or 5 months ago, "autonomous" is the key word here, and why anyone would trust to fly autonomously I would not understand LOL

Airline pilots are actually only in control of the plane for around 3 minutes every flight!

many people dont trust alot of things everyday... like opening the refrigerator door only to close it, then open it again to see if anything inside has changed, as if to say the frig might be lying to you about its contents...
I have no idea why I trust my alarm clock to go off either.... my livelihood depends on it.
Do we trust the airbags in our cars?

But I understand why it would be hard to let go of control of things that we feel we need... but actually never did.

Autonomous cars... is one, a BIG one for me. and since I dont really like flying, when I do eventually have to get on a plane, im usually somewhat liquored up prior cause I know any one of 100,000 parts can fail and bring the plane down despite what the pilot wants. Having to fly into and out of various places in the middle east was the worst for me, and Im grateful I dont have to do that anymore... when you see a tracer round fly through the thin skin of a Chinook from the floor up while sitting there in the dark, yeah, you get religious real quick...

3 hmmm,, well rather 3 or not, or more, planes have wings and are a million times most stable, that's my take on it
