"if these were real they wouldn't fly in remote areas, they'd fly in front of a ton of people on very public area" <thing flies in public space in front of a ton of people> "check out this kangaroo"

This thing seems incapable of flying at any other time that 5:30 am.
Would that be at dawn? You do know that the wind abates/lapses at dawn? I would think this type of craft are vulnerable to wind therefore they would seek the time when wind is at its least.

By whose reckoning are they avoiding exposure?

You won't accurately report what I told you about exhaust condensate on your analysis video. IMO you are hiding something. You don't do exactly what I think you should do. Therefore your motives are very suspect.

See how that kind of argument works?

Go look at it on Google map/satelite.

THen show me a more 'remote' and controlled area in monaco where you could possibly have less witnesses.

There is nowhere.

The only people who could have seen it were people given permission to be on the helipad land and people in the upper floors of the nearby hotels and a few people nearby who happen to be up at 5:30 am

That alone should alarm investors.


Not surprising there is almost no third party footage except for that very odd looking one i linked to a while back that was shot on a potato ( in monaco of all places where you would imagine most people would be able to afford a decent camera).


SO yeah - helipad hanging over the sea' 530 am - That kind of remote. As in a quiet dock in london at 530 am remote.

That kind of remote.

Not as in a lost tribe of amazon remote.

Remote as in a very controlled place where very few random people can hope to witness it.

ALmost deliberately hidden away.

Remote like doing it on a boat far from shore, far from anyone, who without high powered binoculars would have no chance to see it.


THe kind of remote where everyone thinks its normal that no one seems to have seen it or filmed it or remembers seeing it.


That kind of remote.

Not antarctic islands remote.
Monaco isn't on the ocean. The flight was at 5pm. It took place in full view of the marina. A crowd gathered to watch. Video footage is readily available online. Pleasure yachts can be seen clearly, with full views of the action. The whole thing happens in broad daylight, in what looks like the afternoon of a beautiful Mediterranean day.

Honestly, I'm surprised you didn't get the jet pack model number wrong as well.
