  1. An origami-like drone developed at EPFL is flexible enough to absorb shocks without breaking before returning to its initial shape. This new type of drone, which was inspired by insect wings, draws on the advantages of both stiff and flexible structures.
  2. A flying car that will not require a pilot's licence to operate has been unveiled in California. This flying Car is named as BlackFly and it can travel for up to 25 miles at a speed of 62mph. The creator of BlackFly is Opener, an aviation company based in Palo Alto, California. According to Opener, BlackFly is the world’s first ultralight all-electric fixed-wing vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft. BlackFly is a single-seat Personal Aerial Vehicle (PAV) designed and built for a new world of three-dimensional transportation. BlackFly is simple to master and requires no formal licensing (in USA) or special skills to operate safely. Even though not required by FAA regulations, BlackFly operators will be required to successfully complete the FAA Private Pilot written examination and also complete company-mandated vehicle familiarization and operator training.
  3. Kalashnikov Concern is a Russian Defense Company, named after AK-47 designer Kalashnikov. It has showed a demo of its one-person flying car. The so-called flying car has eights pairs of rotors that provide lift. The vehicle has a skeletal metal frame and is controlled by a pair of joysticks. There is no gasoline or diesel engine. Two banks of batteries are located under the rider and likely provide electricity to the eight pairs of rotors. The use of electricity saves weight over the use of a petroleum-powered engine and gas tanks, but like quadcopter drones the vehicle can probably only fly a half hour or less before exhausting its batteries. The flying car could have military applications down the road including scouting, communications, and other tasks.
  4. Just found out about this interesting Chinese variant of the MQ-8 Fire scout UAV helicopter, one thing I notice is the strange rotorhub. Anybody have any details on this interesting helo? Look closely at the MQ-8 Fire scout compared to the Chinese SVU-200 Rotor hub design, if you look closely it has no pitch links, I think they're hidden inside the shaft, like the swiss marenco helicopter. Very interesting

  6. 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 https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B0-pg4QPCI-rekx4amdldDlIZUU&usp=sharing Would anyone be interested in taking a look and participating in a discussion of this nature?
