I've been gathering several information for my project. One of them is that a flight of a RC Plane or Copter can only last for approximately 10 minutes or even lower.
I have this theory: That relatively short duration of flight is caused by RC communication.
If that theory is right, I'm thinking maybe there's a way to overcome it: ArduPilot Mega.
If an ArduPilot can take a task to get to some coordinates (way-points) & altitudes, and then get an input from a GPS about realtime coordinate & altitude of the plane, then it simply can give instructions to all the controls (ESC, throttle, rudder, etc.) to make sure that the plane sticks or gets back to its given path. This all will be done via cables because the ArduPilot itself is on-board the plane. This way, supposedly, the battery will no longer be used for RC comm.
The questions are:
1. Is my theory, someway somehow, true?
2. If it is. Theoretically, how long can the flight duration can be extended with that theory?
Maybe this time, I'll get a reply. Hopefully =)
