Just saw this on Reddit, thought others would find the AP work interesting:
Good pics. In the first one you can see that trunk that is (or was) spraying water into one of the reactors to cool it down. Pics from the 20th...so while many of us were thinking, "this crisis is a great time to send in a UAV", somebody did!
Looks like that air photo service takes pics with the UAV plane but they also have a radio controlled (presumably FPV) helicopter.
Just reading a little more about them:
15kg plane with a 2 cycle 86cc engine, 2.2m x 2.8m (roughly 7foot x 9foot)
travels at 100km/h~220km/h (about 60~130mph)
flight time of 4~5 hours
maximum range of 500km (there and back, all together)
they also say they're fully licensed.
What is name of plane, do you know how much airframe and where can buy it ?
@Felipe, all about the UAV here
I believe the overhead radiation is quite small as we have seen overflight photos from classic manned helo.
The problem is mostly in that soup they made by pouring water onto the nails.
Overhead radiation is most likely severly reducing RC range, and this is why it is not a good scenario for not-fully autonomous quadcopter, on the other hand TRULY RELIABLE navigating in rubble looks beyond what small flying dustbins can do. Last thing they need is extra 3kg of radioactive waste. Not to mention about props putting all dust in the air. I think no, they dont anything copterish there.
