UAV flying ceiling

I have this question I hope you guys have the answer, what is the flying ceiling for UAV´s considering low temperatures and the lack of air. And what type of motor would be the best suggested for this purpose.

  • In the United States (home of the not so free anymore) we are limited to a 400ft. ceiling.  If we are within 2 miles from an airport

    we can't fly at all.

    As far as actual altitude it all depends on the aircraft.  i would use a small heating pad that uses an exothermal reaction to generate heat.  You can get them at a drug store.  it will provide heat for over an hour.

  • High Roger,

    Please be more specific about payload and altitude.
