It’s very hard to comment precisely on enhancements. The goal is to get this working bare bones then make enhancements. So as long as the drone can do the job, we should move forward as inexpensively as possible, then invest more into it. Agree?

Yes Steven Reubenstone is right. We should work on the hook mechanism first. And make the drone able to fly. Rest enhancements can be tie up later.
