Shhhhh....quiet drone blades

Electric propulsion has led to significant reduction in noise over traditional petrol/nitro powered systems. I'd love to see more quiet technology go into quad blades similar to how military helicopters rotors have seen.

Anyone have data, opinions, tech to share on this?

I'm torn on this. I personally would like quieter drone blade options for commercial use, such as during times where you don't want the drone to be noticed/heard like a wedding. This would also help the public from complaining about drone noise and disturbing their peace.

On the other hand I want drones to be loud so they are more easily seen and can't be used for nefarious reasons. Loud drones help with privacy because you are alerted that they are there.

Last night I was just telling my buddy that wind speed is the main factor of the noise and until they engineer blades that defy the laws of physics, I don't foresee silent drones.


Anyways, cool concept but unless it changes performance...meh.
