One of the less expensive ones

This isn't the first carbon-fiberglass hybrid, but it appears to be one of the less expensive ones. This company also makes all-carbon and all-fiberglass compounds.

Ann, yes, it seems to be a good improvement and amenable to high volume production.  I watched the video and it was very interesting.

Lou, cheaper and high-volume--what more could you want in (mostly) non-structural carbon composites?

Ann, this may be just the right material to produce all of those helicopter drones in the future. Perfect timing on the interesting post.

Argh, William, hadn't thought of that. Like I said in comments to Rob's drone post, I don't want them flying around my hood.

Ann, the material certainly sounded like it was created just for the drone manufacturing process. 

But if you really don't want drones in your area there are ways to discourage them from coming near you. Some of the ways are more subtle, while others are quite a bit lkess subtle. And don't forget that it is still possible to purchase some quite powerful IR lasers for a quite cheap price. And a blind drone is a harmless drone.

William, sounds like you dislike the idea of drones in your hood even more than I do.

Ann, I am not certain just what I think about them in my area. BUT part of considering secondary results of actions is considering how things may be neutralized. Besides that, the cjhallenge of arriving at a way to neutralize whatever calls itself the authority is always entertaining. Not to do it, but to determine how it could be done. It is a challenge sort of thing.

Also, one of the things that I am rewarded for is finding ways to avoid what others may do. It's a problem solving sort of thing.
