Italian Enthusiasm - Above the Clouds Drone


I want share with the community my last goal achieved with an old Multiplex Easycub , APM2, Arduplane 2.6.8, 3DR telemtry 900 mhz, Airspeed sensor and a still not working Attopilot 90A.
A great flight above the clouds after some unsuccessfull flights ( i have lost an easystar with gopro and APM2 still dont know why)
I still have to tune the Nav Roll P for better videos but i am sure you will like it.
Also if i never wrote on the forum it was very helpful for me and i am ready to share all my tests with other people who is starting with drones.

EDIT : add version without copyright limitations at

If my foamy had a chance to smash a 747 whindshield at 1300 mt asl with the nearest airport far 150 km i think that 747 already had other bigger problems :-)

Thank you.

Legalities aside, there are ways of ensuring safety in respect of piloted aircraft. What I do: Obtain an IFR chart of the area I intend to operate in. This contains a "Minimum Sector Altitude" - simply put this is a minimum safe altitude that aircraft operating under IFR - Instrument Flight Rules have to stay above. I operate below it. 

As for VFR - Visual Flight Rules aircraft, they have no business being in or around cloud or low visibility conditions (as defined by your local civil aviation authority). A spotter will take care of the air between the ground and the cloud base. 

In short, stay between the ground and the Minimum Sector Altitude and you shouldn't hit a 747.

Also an appropriate radio receiver tuned to the local unicom or airfield frequency should help to keep you aware of the position of light aircraft. I say should because general aviation pilots don't always do what they are supposed to either...

Grazie , ho letto.

Chiariscimi solo per favore visto che si parla di Bozza. Voli come questo sono gia regolamentati e quindi fuorilegge o non ancora ?

Well this is wonderful.  I sure wish the FAA would let us enjoy some of this flying in some areas around the US.  I sure hope and dream someday we can.  Great video.

In my neighborhood at this time of year, that could easily be below 400 feet :(
