Drone-mounted Egg Beater

With indoor GPS

There is a new indoor GPS that uses wifi that will make this not the kind of messy or expensive thing it could be. Drone- mounted egg beater.

       Most GPI (and indeed, GPIO) are not too afraid of working out of doors too, as long as there’s not a lot of rain. My first computer was actually a Chubb cash register M6800 board that had a debug monitor written into a new eprom, and had four MC6820 chips, each of which had two banks of eight IO (in this case were mostly sent to out, via high current 12VDC buffers (presumably to drive motors and lights on the cash register)).

       Resisting the torque could be tricky. But interestingly whimsical anyway.

       [RayfordSteele] // Resisting the torque could be tricky. //   

       Just have two motors, each attached to a separate beater, and turning in opposite directions.   

       Added later: Better yet, would be to use one motor plus gears to drive the two beaters in opposite directions.

       Resistance is futile ...

       Inductance is pathetic.
Ian Tindale, Apr 06 2016
  

       What about capacitance ?
8th of 7, Apr 06 2016
  

       That's a highly charged topic
hippo, Apr 06 2016
  

       Don't expect us to hand you the answer to that on a plate.

       Watt again? HB has an Ample supply of pun threads already.
Voice, Apr 06 2016
  

       Yeah, but some of us are right at ohm in a thread like this.
normzone, Apr 06 2016
  

       That's Currently the case, but don't Gauss on and on about it. Joule get yourself into trouble.

       You’re just biased. I’ll supply the touch of class D which I’m positive will rectify matters, OR this conversation will continue to flip-flop (j/k).
Ian Tindale, Apr 06 2016
  

       I can see this idea has potential
hippo, Apr 07 2016
  

       So many bad puns. I'm shocked.

       Anode of caution - we could be accused of droning on and on...
Canuck, Apr 07 2016
  

       We're just building up a battery of material to draw from. No need to take flight yet.
normzone, Apr 07 2016
  

       Presuming this will be some kind of helicopter (a plane being unable to hover, and a blimp not having enough lifting capacity), I think the downdraft might blow the eggs away.
notexactly, Apr 07 2016
  

       Actually, aircraft ARE capable of hovering - it only requires the appropriate conditions and an experienced pilot. I have witnessed it on two occasions.   

       I'm certain it's not a comfortable drill, but it can be done.
normzone, Apr 08 2016
  

       In a Harrier, certainly.   

       Helicopters are aircraft too, you know.
Ian Tindale, Apr 08 2016
  

       //Helicopters are aircraft too, you know.//   

       That's debatable. I think of them as accident precursors.   

       //Actually, aircraft ARE capable of hovering//   

       I've seen gliders landing into a strong headwind with a ground speed of about -5mph.
bs0u0155, Apr 08 2016
  

       // I think of them as accident precursors. //   

       We consider them nothing more than a damn-fool way to commit suicide. All helicopter pilots are clinically insane.   

       // gliders landing into a strong headwind //   

       The Fieseler Storch has such exceptional low-speed stability that there are numerous examples (some on film) of passengers embarking and disembarking when the aircraft is still in the air - but barely moving relative to the ground.   

       This isn't the "leaping from a moving Lysander" kind of stunt - it's much more sedate and decorous.
8th of 7, Apr 08 2016
  

       Yes, but those passengers would feel pretty silly if the wind suddenly changed.
MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 08 2016
  

       Where I used to work when I was young (at Talair, in Goroka, PNG) there were Pilatus Porters (one normal, one turbo). They had the aerodynamics of a brick wall.
Ian Tindale, Apr 08 2016
  

       Lovely planes. The uncanny resemblance to the Storch is of course complete coincidence...
8th of 7, Apr 08 2016
  

       But can you tell Stork from Porter?
MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 08 2016
  

       I can’t believe that’s not better.
