    Basically Users campaign it to tell single occupant vehicles that they are the reason for added pollution and thus you can no longer see the volcanos due to smog. Pretty crazy campaign for sure.

    Drivers stuck in traffic in Mexico City lately have found themselves being buzzed by a fleet of sign-toting drones. “Driving by yourself?” some scolded in Spanish. “This is why you can never see the volcanoes”—a reference to the smog that often hovers over the mega-city and obscures two nearby peaks.

    What about the carbon footprint created to charge all those Inspire batteries?

    Can one charge their Inspire battery with a cheap solar panel?

    If you had a solar panel controller that put out 27 volts and enough amperage. Or a panels connected to an inverter but ideally you would want Solar Panels>solar panel controller>storage battery>inverter>dji battery charger.
