Meet the Loon Coptor, the 1st Air + Surface + Underwater Drone

January 19, 2016 — by feedmeister0

     This has to be one of, if not the coolest drone on the market at this moment. I wouldn’t mind having a human sized Loon Coptor for my own personal pleasure. It sure would be nice to take it out for a spin, maybe take a dive to check out the aquatic life near a coral reef in some tropic local. In the mean time I will settle for the smaller version. Just strap on a under water camera and let the fun commence. 

     Here is a Video of the Loon Copter from the 2016 ‘Drones for Good Competition.’ The Loon Copter was selected as 1 of 10 semifinalist in the international category. The competition had received 1017 entries from 165 countries. 

     The Loon Copter project started in 2014 at Oakland University and is the first multi-rotor drone to successfully demonstrate flight, operation on the surface of water, as well as diving. This is a proof-of-concept prototype and there is still a lot of work to be done. 

     They are looking into extended wireless range underwater, navigation underwater, a redesign of the hull for more efficient diving, payloads for different applications, etc. 

     If you like to support this project, please “like” the Loon Copter on the semifinalists webpage here:

Drone Footage of the Democracy Protests in Hong Kong (Video)

September 29, 2014 — by feedmeister0

Here is the drone footage showing just how many people have showed up in Hong Kong to protest for Democracy.  The downtown Financial district has basically been over run with protesters, and police have resorted to using tear gas to try and disperse the crowds.  That seems to be feeding the mobs, because since the police have used tear gas, the crowds have grown 10 fold.   This Drone footage will give you a good aerial prospective of just how many protesters there are on the scene.
