    Everyone complains, but these things have to start somewhere
    The more commercial they get, they faster the improvements to range, safety etc

    When I think of all the dangers associated with this contraption it makes me think of the south park episode where the whole joke is "it's better than flying".

    So I could be in this drone that plummets to the ground and kills me... or go through TSA, wait for a 4 hour delay, then get crammed into a coach seat? Lemme get in that drone shit dawg.

    Although realistically it will just cut a commute down, as someone from the Los Angeles area..... also worth the risk.

    It's a bunch of kids that didn't study history and think that planes and helicopters just always were.

    no multis just are not efficient at all in any way the only thing they kinda offer is making it easy in a model to build and wire up to a gyro they dont scale up at all or it would been done by Boeing and others already
