After propguards new project. As we are flying near to objects we always have problem with distance info. We tought abuout it, and this is cheap solution.Two laser modules (red and blue) made to overlap at distance of 1.3m
If distance is less than 1.3m red is going left and blue is going right
If distance is more than 1.3m red is going right and blue is going left.

I will keep you informed.

That's the same way the Dambusters maintained their altitude flying over the water.
Two lights setup on the bottom of the bomber, set to converge at the correct height.

Sonar might be better, and power consumption is smaller.

Aiming the lasers to a wall. Perfect way to see or observe vibrations.

Great concept, and effective for the pilot. How do you plan to keep the laser from inadvertently pointing into an observers eye? I realize they will only converge at 1.3 meters, but they will point outward on both sides of the quad the rest of the  time.
