I'd recommend getting in-touch with the creators and see if they'd be interested in developing this. This is their second Kickstarter project (at least), so they've already learned a lot, so could be positioned well to run with it.
So really a vote for one is a vote for the other. Yes, wind is also impacted by the earth's rotation and just the shape of the earths surface, but it's the sun that has the most impact.
was a major hurdle, so I was unable to back the full project. But I did back at a lower level...so we'll get some mealworms to try.
It's going to be difficult to get past many peoples' initial ick factors.
Let's hope they're also on the look-out for debris like from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 etc..
I'm sure there's a bunch of human crap down there (though probably re-purposed where possible by the local inhabitants), but all of it should be of interest to us...either for the damage it's causing, or the damage it's from.
It would need to be something that the person is already familiar with...unfortunately, that is not the situation today. Now, when you're in the same position, using technology will be second nature, and you'll have no problem finding the dining room.
Remote pilots probably don't feel the same level of anxiety as one aboard a craft that's in trouble...it might also mean that, because the remote pilot isn't in any danger, they might not put enough effort into trying to save the craft.
So long as, if a plane goes down and a "present" (on board) pilot would have died, the remote pilot is shot-on-the-spot, I think that'll work as providing enough incentive for them to make sure the craft doesn't crash.
Just my thoughts.
