needs a whisper drive, I can hear this thing at 400 foot altitude. Had it at 120 this weekend and people on boats actually thought they could hit it with beer bottles

I think it was the consumption of the contents of said beer bottles that make them feel they can hit the Mavic.
I wonder if there can be prop designs that will reduce noise?

Stealth helicopter blades.  Someone make these for me already:

If you study prop design, it is the tip that is moving the fastest and closest to the speed of sound and is the problem with the noise.  These blades above obviously reshape the air before it hits the blade tip.

Sound profile vs conventional blade for the above design:

Cheaper to run and much more stealth than a big chopper. And they can do live stream of chases hehehehe!

I'm sure there'd be a market for them, if the price is realistic. Movie sets etc where noise of the rotors is a problem.
