But if a drone wore pants ...

Wouldn't you have to be extremely bored or totally wasted to think of these things?

Or not.

I like the concept of separating Valley types with too much money from that money, so I'm on board with this.

We have a fair number of MeFites who profess to overly empathising with inanimate objects. There's even a term for it I can't remember. A sweater for a quadcopter's comfort doesn't sound that weird to me.

You don't know any knitters personally, I take it? I mean, its like tree knitting but with an additional deployment option for getting it into the tree higher.

The term is "crouton-petter."

Thank you! I knew it was hyphenated, but I couldn't remember what either half was, which makes searching tricky. It was driving me low-key crazy.

Does this give me license to yell at the owners of any non-besweatered drones "THAT DRONE IS COLD!"

If you're cold, they're cold.

Drone thermoregulation really doesn't 'kick in' until around nine or ten months of age; This is no laughing matter. I've seen dozens of sick or ailing drones just in my local park lately.

All of these people receive drones for the holidays without really knowing how to take care of them. Everyone knows it is a bad idea to introduce a new drone to the family during the stressful holiday period, but here we are.

Another irresponsible company flouting recently enacted drone regulations. Those drone sweaters need to have the registration number clearly knitted in to them, and the operators need to inform the FAA in advance where and when the sweater is going to be flown, along with information on colors and patterns.

Failure to properly match the sweater with the season or the drone's complexion (do NOT try to put a red sweater on a winter drone) is punishable by fines or remedial training by Tim Gunn.

But you'd also need drone raincoats because in rain the sweater would soak up the water and weigh the drone down.
Your poor drone would still be cold, and also wet and tired.
