Patent idea

what if you could fly jets in formation like the blue angels that would have technology that would allow the planes to read off eachother and fly in pattern or better yet they could be flown in a routine on a simulator then flown in real life by uplinking the routine program under real conditions that would be sureal and awesome.....

Formation Flying


I believe the technology is there today - at least for drones and I would venture to say that I could get some guys to pull it together

I will forward you a UAV newsletter I get

Some cool things are happening in your neck of the woods
