Hey, love your science ! Slackline tips : - keep your legs flexed and relaxed - you can't stop the movement of the line, try to control it of the line without trying to cancel it - the leg that you raise to take a step also helps you stabilize, you shouldn't try to keep your two legs on the rope Have fun 👋

I guess it's quite easy to find out if this flybot is cheating or not: Calculate the energy it needs for moving its weight on the ground and calculate the energy it needs to lift its weight from the ground. The bigger the difference the less it's cheating.

They keep saying that the drone part only provides balance like arms, but I don't think you would weigh much less if you T-pose to walk a tightrope. lol Cool tech, but I don't get why they pushed so hard against it being a drone with legs. Poor Leo is going to have an identity crisis...

I'm actually not impressed by this robot at all. As much as they try to talk it up as not a drone it's completely a drone with legs. If having contact with the ground is what makes Leonard so much better than a done, Leonard is a very bulky overly complicated design. Simply adding tracks, or quadrupedal legs to a drone would make it infinitely smaller but equally as useful. The video at the end really showed the flaw of Leonard, it can't walk down stairs, so the bipedal function is incredibly limited, so again, drone with legs.

It blows my mind that I'm saying this, but this doesn't seem that impressive or really useful, it's just a drone with long legs. To be able to fly removes pretty much all the utility of having legs in the first place, since you need a really light frame and power supply. A fun design challenge I'm sure but the usefulness is questionable imo

To me this is just a beefier drone. with negligible benefits for adding all that weight. Just have a self-righting mechanism on a flying drone and it's way, way cheaper and does basically all the same stuff. Legs are really scuffed forms of mobility when you're constantly flying.
