Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

A disturbance in the farce I can sense!

I think they are misunderstanding the term drone, I suspect it will be a tethered airship with a flight controller & radio gear and not a multirotor (they would have to have a very large fleet of both multirotors and staff performing battery changes)

Tethered would airships could possibly pull power via the tethers.

Then again considering BT is buying them and they are also  talking about using BT hotspots to provide voice services rather than using phone masts I suspect such words are being spoken from methane emitting orifice

This is so very EE-soon-to-be-BT. 

I recall a day sat in a presentation at Martlesham Heath (BT sci-tech centre) where one of the chaps said that within two years BT would own the entire Internet.  There was a stunned silence. You could hear the proverbial pin drop.  I think we were all far too embarrassed to roar with laughter.

That were in 1998.

Sounds like a dog chasing a car, if they had managed it (tee hee) they wouldn';t have known what it was or what to do with it

I know that Southampton Uni were demo-ing a tethered UAS today in Norfolk.  The  concept is that you power it from the tether cable giving you a persistent platform that doesn';t have the ground or aerial  footprint of a balloon.  Clever stuff!

Wonder what the CAA would have to say about it? Or would the commercial aspect of it effectively silence them  :rofl:

I remember talking to an offcom engineer saying they had been looking into using tethered drones as backup when doing work on masts or whatnot. That was almost a year ago, and the science seemed logical at the time, but for a permanent idea like ee propose seems a bit stupid since its weather dependant, and I';m sure far easier to steal for an opportunist

Then again - in 1980 I was the Manager of a Building Society and I used to joke with customers who were manually signing their cash withdrawal slips with a steam biro that one day we';d give them a sort of key pad on a wire and they';d type in some numbers and that would automatically authorise us to hand over the cash  :blink :blink :blink

And now that';s even old hat  #wireless #contactless  :o :o
