This video was captured with a X8 flying wing. On board is an APM 2.5+ autopilot, GoPro HD, and a 1.3gHz video Transmitter. It has an endurance just shy of 2 hours and an estimated max altitude of over 20,000' (battery limited). Plans for the future include fine tuning of auto-land, a pan-tilt for the GoPro, and a fixed dedicated FPV camera.
