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.
Though it's not got much support as yet (I am a backer).
Assuming that our DC sources of electricity are already somewhat efficient, why don't we just have other things that use that current be DC as well?
It would seem that inverters loose some "energy" in the conversion process, which is why we need this Google like X Prize to develop something more efficient...so taking them out of the equation seems like it would be a good idea.
Is it just that we're so used to designing electronics etc. to use AC, or are there other benefits? and, if so, then why not put effort into designing AC sources of electricity?
Oh well...it was nice to see some code that did actually match what the characters were babbling about...even if there were other things that they did that didn't make any sense what-so-ever to someone who actually understood what they were seeing on the computer screen.
