The main objective of this project is to bring society back to its roots in mother nature. I would like to unify this idea with the advancements in today's technology. I would also like to put a positive message behind this unification, since the technology of unmanned drones has obtained a negative connotation within the recent events in today's culture.
My plan is to purchase a high altitude, unmanned drone that will fly into the atmosphere and drop payloads of indigenous plant and flower seeds over the United States countryside, as well as highly populated cities. The seeds will flourish beneath the drop sites and bring forth beauty and edification to the cities and countryside. This project is aimed at bettering society by bringing us back to our natural roots, as well as creating a more beautiful landscape for our future children.
To achieve this objective, I will need to purchase the unmanned drone ($9500-$10000), modify the drone to drop the payloads of seeds ($2500-$3500), purchase large amounts of seeds that are specific to certain areas of the United States ($1000-$2000), and travel to different states to launch the drone and drop the payloads (this cost is dependent on where and how many locations we travel to, this will utilize the remainder of the donations).
I hope to gain your support in this tremendous endeavor, for this will affect the society for many generations to come.
Risks and challenges
The main challenges with this project will be the procurement and modification of the drone. I have found the drone already, however I will have to modify it to deliver the seed payloads. To do this I will have the drone modified by an experienced R/C technician. This should be no problem since the ideas that I have for the delivery system should be a fairly simple modification.
The next challenge would be transportation of the drone to the drop locations, this can be solved quite simply by utilizing a small truck or transportation company to transport the drone. I will also have to find out what specific altitudes that I can fly the drone at in certain states. This will be very simple, as I only have to contact the local FAA substations within the state.
