Drones have a negative connotation with the missles and all.
No doubt this is the reason
I blame Biker.

Helicopter shit maneuver has begun

so explain something. When the NASA people are talking about this thing they call it a "helicopter". Which is odd in today's world of drones, where everything is a drone. Why do they use the word helicopter instead?


I think technically it is both an unmanned drone and a helicopter....... Some drones are quadcopters. Etc....
I think you are right. A helicopter us anything that uses a rotor to provide lift and thrust. And a drone can be a propelled by that or a drone could also be like an airplane and use propellers or turbines.

So, while all (unmanned) helicopters are drones, not all drones are helicopters. This seems more like the answer that Sheldon would give.

Unmanned aircraft (UAV) are controlled directly (think RC airplane) Drones are autonamous. Not all UAV are drones but all drones are UAV. Some drones are like cars others like submarines.
Drones are mostly told to go somewhere and do something but get themselves there without help.

Pictures will come first, video will probably take the same amount of time it took to get the landing video, I suppose we can look back at how many days it took in this thread from landing to landing video.

4 days.

This thread started on the 18th, i posted the landing video on the 22nd.

In 4 days earth was visible to it 8 times and the overhead surveyor probably 16. So maybe 24 hours of total download time from mars?

The rover still has to finish shitting it out and drive away, then a day or two for tests, so it may actually fly over the weekend, so maybe video Wednesday or Thursday?

Flumper's proposal to Nasa.

To Whom it may concern at Nasa:

It has come to my attention that there is about a 4 or 6 day delay in getting video back from the surface of Mars so that our fans here in earth can enjoy it. And since this project depends on the support of the people, it is in your best interest to do everything possible to make this experience as enjoyable to the viewers as possible. Considering these facts, I suggest that you stop all updates to the public for 6 days. During that time you begin to compile video, audio, whatever you think they will most enjoy. And then, instead of telling them something is going to happen and making them wait, you just spring the video on them as though its just now happening. They won't know the difference, and in the grand scheme of looking at stuff on Mars, what difference does 6 days make?

So, after this 6 day delay, we will be watching daily live-ish videos from Mars.

I hope this helps.

Your freind (sp?), Flumper.

The Mars helicopter Ingenuity is preparing for a historic take-off as NASA attempts the first powered, guided flight on another world.

That flight could occur as soon as April 8.

So maybe video of the crash by the time zombie Jesus rises?
