Quadrocopters like Darter should have quicker yaw rate. Also they are too fragile at landing.

- UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle)
had just opened another ticket about this:
Quad-Copter rotation (pedals) needs serious tweaking (very slow / low input)
I have 2 quad-copters and seen the mil-variant in action during a deployment to Afghanistan.
Rotation should be at least 75-100% of the pitch/roll rate to allow
- turning around (almost impossible)
- use of Roll/bank + Rotation/yaw together which is most effective on copters DEV_Version
Electric motors have insane to almost instantaneous acceleration in small scale, and right now those UAV feel like they were fed with a battery of too low voltage :P
Also I think they didn't isolate the thing between collision and being shot at, lead to the issue of landing and breaking it, which is really hard to happen IRL.
Totally agree. The yaw rate was the first thing I noticed.
Also the damage model. You would have to be going at full speed into a tree for that thing to even break. It has bumpers. Fly it into a wall and watch it bounce back with its ADVANCED AUTO-STABILIZATION technology (the hallmark of quad-copter drones). You can fly these things using an iPad with ease. Currently it's harder than flying a helicopter.
