Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Initial Design - you are still exploring the idea and have not tested it with users

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

I have no team, with the funds I would start the '3P Design & Solution Company'. And would work with other companies to make this a reality.

Size of your team or organization

  • I am submitting as an individual

Funding Request

  • $100,000

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

If I was selected, I would start by getting some materials for an initial transportation vehicle for myself to get around. Then remaining funds would be used to 1. find a location for construction of the planes and store the materials. 2. Creation of a business cards, website, and company name. 3. Hiring of professional minded workers. 4. Begin prototype construction. 5. Testing 6. Would rent them to begin increased interest. During all this would also use local and social network to bring in clients.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

I would measure it by feedback to my website from clients, and those they saved or assisted in better business/travel.

Rob: Thank you for the proposal. I see that other design firms also are experimenting with quad-copters and drones that can carry humans: https://www.wired.co.uk/article/ehang-184-drone-video-fly-price-test.

Thanks Tom, it was a cool look at the use of a drone like plane. The only thing I don't like in that design is where are all the handicapped. Those with Cancer, cerebral palsey, and other people. With that design if I fell and the fan blades don't have an all off securely lock. So I would always keep my perpulson systems at least 3 feet above the roof. And 3 feet from the edge of my designs exterior frame. And start could only be done after i inserted my valid liscense in USA regulated machine. Just key thing I making sure area addressed in it's design.
