I saw a funny t-shirt on a DJI user group. It had the answers to all the questions you get when you fly. It was pretty spot on.
The only thing I have a problem with is, only a few of my rigs are quadcopters. Because I have a bunch of different heli’s, quadcopter doesn’t quite fit. Drone sounds sinister and deadly, UAV, or Unmanned arial Vehicle is confusing because in my a head a vehicle is manned. I know it is not necessarily true, it’s just how I think. Helicopter is misleading, it refers to a full size human carrying machine and multi-rotor is just meh. I struggle with a proper finding the right term that will roll of the lips and satisfy my desire for a correct definition.
Maybe a better name is compact aerial camera platform. Yes, that is perfect. I just made it up and I can just say cacp. After sitting for a full minute trying to think of a better acronym, I give up.
I am open to ideas.
