This was a duration test with the SuperMiss UAV. A 20 kilometer flight over water under autonomous control and we followd in a chase boat.

That is impressive. What autopilot system are you using and also what HD cam are you flying?

Thanks Scott and EITS!
It is the Picopilot -NA and a Creatvice Vado HD cam. Really small and light camera (3 oz) but very good quality which is a lot better when it hasn't compressed and converted by Vimeo... :)
This SuperMiss setup is good for 45 minutes of flight on a 4200 mAh pack with camera ande secondary GPS logger.

That looks higher than 100m.

Yes, it was about 140 to be exact, but I didnt have the figures when editing the video.
Sharp observation Jack! :)
It is sometimes scary how you find yourself able to judge the planes altitude from the ground by just estimating. I normally fly att 100 m AGL, but added some saftey margin on this mission in case we were to catch from the chase boat...
