Pretty neat idea actually. Now all he has to do is build a fleet of them line them up and let all of them mow at the same time then install a global positioning system in them and have a drone to fly over for watching the field being mowed he can view the progress on his phone while out shopping for more things to build.

Well, I hope this was shown as something not to do. Kinda like the guy that was drawn into a lathe and was crushed.
I did not see any sensors that would stop the 10hp plus killer if it were about to run into a child or animal.
RC equipment can and does fail so the start/stop control might work if the operator sees the problem in time.
What is next? A remote controlled chain saw?
Back to the shop.
