Hi all,


My name is Lawrence. I am with a company called VersaTOL (versatol.com) that manufacturers small unmanned helicopter systems. I am performing a market study with the goal of identifying high-value use cases for our product line. By high value I mean use cases where a small unmanned helicopter can perform an important role traditionally performed by a manned helicopter at a fraction of the cost, perform a job that needs to be done but manned helicopters cant perform and/or where the potential to save lives of pilot and crew is high.
Some product documentation can be found here
Would anyone be interested in taking a look and participating in a discussion of this nature?

Did the pin setter want to talk with the machine that took his job?

For the tethered overwatch role you don't have nearly the capability of the products you're trying to replace. (towers and blimps)  A ten pound payload isn't going to be enough.


For your bigger heli I think the FireScout has already paved the way there for you but you'll have to over come the same problems that they did.  For that I hope you have deep pockets. 

Don't worry. It's just me.
