IDEA

Here’s a very basic concept of the flying drone concept, obviously it’s just a piece of paper I drew trump on, but it does give a feel to what a full trump head and hillary head would act like if the drone attached to them was airborne.

Hahahha, how much weight can these hold anton? It’d be awesome to have the robots as human-like as possible and use limbs as modes of interaction, but this is a really smart way to get around programming for that.

Will Macaulay The drone I had was super cheap and really tiny so not that much, it can lift way more than that piece of paper, but the problem is more with flying it with too much weight the flight controller can’t handle corrections to pitch/yaw in time so leads to lots of crashes haha. There are much bigger and more expensive drones where you can crank up the voltage and lift a lot, but this will also kill the battery / flight time quickly.

I’m settling on the idea of having very large Trump and Hillary helium balloons made, then finding a quadcopter model which will be just heavy enough to slowly bring the balloon down when it’s off, and will only have to turn on the motors occasionally to regain altitude / change directions, this will extend the battery / flight time potentially to an hour+ which would be fantastic if we could make that happen.
