Perhaps I should build my first hybrid for this contest... I may get 1st place for the sole reason that me building a hybrid would be absolutely mind blowing :shock: :D

Would you sacrifice your principles for some cheap popularity?

Anyone here messed with drones? I got a Parrot Bebop 2 last year and had a blast with it (brought it with to Açores and I got some amazing footages). Then my gf's little brother crashed it so I upgraded to the Anafi. The camera is pretty decent by my standards, sharp image on my monitors and TV. However ever since I got into photography (took a few course and really liked it) I stopped taking photos nor videos with my phone (which has similar quality as the drone cameras) plus both drones I own don't have obstacle sensors so even though they can fly by themselves I don't really feel comfortable doing so.
Resumed, I'd like to start building a decent drone that can carry a decent camera with relatively long flight time (long enough for it to cover 4km or so, sent my drone once to record a tiny island 1,6km off coast, pretty useful). Is it possible?
