I often fly from boats and I think the hand catch procedures I saw on youtube look a bit risky. Nine out of ten times i will probably go fine. I'm just not to eager to be the 10th person to catch the I1 drone Hence, for flights from boats or fine sand I'm thinking to -on a case by case- mount two 10 mm carbon tubes of 31 cm length each between the inspire's feet (at the end of the legs). The tube moves along with the legs/rotor blades so their will always be 15 cm between rotor blades and the tube which will be "grabbed". I have never seen the legs of the I1 in my camera view so the tube will most likely not be visible either. I use carbon, to avoid disturbance between the antenna cables that are mounted in the I1 legs and to keep the solution as light as possible, whilst being strong enough to do what I want it to do.. The solution will look something like this picture: The tube can move a little to allow for the leg-dampers to do their work. The tube has 4 safety elastics on all ends of the tube-ends to prevent that the tube gets disconnected from one of the feet during flight or during landing. I intend to use 10 mm. hollow tube to reduce impact of side wind as much as possible. I will cut out a slice of 10 mm deep and 2-3 mm. wide so that the tube snugly fits on the feet. The weight of the tube will be approx. 30 grams. Total cost: 6 Euro... The procedure I intend to follow when i have a brave volunteer with me: Switch off Auto Gear Down before taking off. When landing, place the drone 2 meters next to the "catcher" approx 60-80 cm above his/her head, front of the drone facing to the catcher. Then, slowly position the drone exactly above the catcher. Catcher grabs the drone. Pilot immediately shuts down the drone. When i'm alone: Switch off Auto Gear Down before taking off. When landing, I place the drone 2 meters next to myself approx. 60-80 cm above my head, side of the drone facing to me. Then, I slowly position the drone 50 cm next to me. I grab the drone by the 10 mm. tube that is closed to me and immediately shut down the drone. Drone slowly tumbles around the tube, but by the time it is 90 degrees flipped, the rotors will have stopped. Does this plan make any sense or have i overseen something?
