I dont mind the Tenga Egg, but they're once use only.

I can't see it would fly any better in wind, in cross -section it would not be any smaller than existing drones (more like larger?)
All the internal space to house folded away legs and rotors means less space for battery and motors.

Design student's project that looks cool as it folds up ...?

Convenience at the expense of horsepower and flight time I'd suspect...

People will be scrambling to buy them!
I hope the design is patented. Someone might Poach the idea.
It would be a crack up to crash one.
Does it come with a team of all the kings horses and all the kings men? Don't bother they wouldn't be able to put it back together again if they tried.

Also I see another problem. If you drop it into the ocean the electrics will get fried.

With drones you really want to stay with the big couple of brands - unless you aren't that keen on keeping your drone for long. In OZ DJI is it.. Their Mavic would have to have less surface area to be wind effected than this.

These guys must have been watching this when they came up with the idea.
