TED talk on Drone use in conservation


Senior Member
Great video, it's interesting to see where this hobby is getting exposure to. Hope this can take some negativity away from the word drone and association to our hobby
Ah! You got here before me! It's a fascinating talk!
It also struck me, before the Bixler was pictured, that they were costing the airframe at $500, which seemed a little high for the models they were talking about. My thought was that the guys could develop a scratch build suitable for the purpose described and make a kit available.

I watched this talk as a result of this post. Glad I did!
What surprises me more than anything is the results they are getting with the simplest of equipment. I love the concept so much this is certainly going to be my primary direction in 2014.

Thanks for finding,
