Anyone already owning a Beebop will say you are right, bro...

Actually, I am thinking to detach the Beebop fuselage, it is capable of autonomous operation, mount on a stock flying wing operated by a standard RC, and give it a try as a FPV machine

However, I see a major flaw at Disco: the lens placement calls for a guaranteed crash in the first 10 landings... maybe this is the key of the business as for ink printers, "consumables"

Yep! you crash it ..and then you get some damage directly on the lens.
