Has anyone ever re-attempted this record?
I am interested in doing this and attempting this. Probably most likely with a GO Pro HD camera attached to record everything. Is there a good autopilot that would be able control the gas engine that one could recommend, perhaps with collision avoidance. I think I saw something about sonar detection and collision avoidance for the APM 1.0. 2560 board on the udrones.com store website.
I would be using a 4 channel rc gas engine plane, the gas engine would be modified to have an alternator to charge the batteries.
