Greetings. I am one of two members of a team from Atlanta, Georgia trying to learn about using drones for slung load delivery in various applications. My teammate will register and introduce himself as soon as he gets off the phone talking to firefighters in Hawaii. In our usual work we conduct experimental research on the aerodynamics of helicopters, slung loads, and multiple rotors in general. Hope to talk to all of you, particularly anyone who will talk to us about drones used with slung loads, drones used in delivery, slung loads with helicopters, and the business of drones in general. Safety concerns? Insurance issues? Crime-fighting?
I think this article belongs here more than Agriculture. Interesting news. They are testing drones to drop balls filled with chemicals to fight fires. Doesn't seem very efficient to me, but you've got to start and learn with something I suppose. They'll need fixed wing aircraft with large payload capacity to make this effective. http://www.sacbee.com/news/business/article73419752.html
