MIR | MIR is launching a new UAV design to automate rope access work
Interesting, using 2 xis gymbal for each rotor stack so have full 6 DoF all the time (aside from gymbal-lock scenarios). Should allow high agility, and potentially allowing the body to go vertical.

New patented tilted coaxial VTOL
Interesting coaxial monocopter UAV build, with the motor mount providing roll and pitch. I wonder how yaw is done with a single motor though?

Helicopter Could be 'Scout' for Mars Rovers
I would have expected larger rotors, more like one of those human powered helicopters. With the low pressure, you need hugely long rotors.

This appears to be a reimplementation the keyence revolutor mechanism for swashplateless rotor blade pitch control via motor pulse shifting.

Looks like a semi-hot cycle helicopter, but instead of a potentially more complicated tip jet drive, it appears to use dual contra rotating direct drive turbines to spin the rotors, exhausting into the inter-disk area of the rotor hub. That exhaust choice is a bit odd though, but it might increase local air velocity over the blades.

Apparently working on a microwave electric thermal thruster using water as a plasma monopropellant. Sort of like VASIMR?
