You say this isn't just a drone with legs, but it's name literally means "legs onboard drone". In others words "a drone with legs".

It reminds of a chicken! I once lifted up a chicken on a teeter totter, and it started flapping its wings to regain its balance. It's not enough to support sustained flight, but it's there for minor maneuvers

1.make a back pack with proper ratios for a real person. 2. plot a skater with a green suit and 100's of motion sensors. 3. record the skater with drone backpack. put them in a bowl, ramp and ollie obstacles. 4.model movements in a drone with the imput curves from human trials. 5. boom, your drone person is the shizzz it.

Hey, love your science ! Slackline tips : - keep your legs flexed and relaxed - you can't stop the movement of the line, try to control it of the line without trying to cancel it - the leg that you raise to take a step also helps you stabilize, you shouldn't try to keep your two legs on the rope Have fun 👋

I guess it's quite easy to find out if this flybot is cheating or not: Calculate the energy it needs for moving its weight on the ground and calculate the energy it needs to lift its weight from the ground. The bigger the difference the less it's cheating.

They keep saying that the drone part only provides balance like arms, but I don't think you would weigh much less if you T-pose to walk a tightrope. lol Cool tech, but I don't get why they pushed so hard against it being a drone with legs. Poor Leo is going to have an identity crisis...

I'm actually not impressed by this robot at all. As much as they try to talk it up as not a drone it's completely a drone with legs. If having contact with the ground is what makes Leonard so much better than a done, Leonard is a very bulky overly complicated design. Simply adding tracks, or quadrupedal legs to a drone would make it infinitely smaller but equally as useful. The video at the end really showed the flaw of Leonard, it can't walk down stairs, so the bipedal function is incredibly limited, so again, drone with legs.

TheJerbol Vor 20 Tage
It blows my mind that I'm saying this, but this doesn't seem that impressive or really useful, it's just a drone with long legs. To be able to fly removes pretty much all the utility of having legs in the first place, since you need a really light frame and power supply. A fun design challenge I'm sure but the usefulness is questionable imo
