    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Neat! My grandson is a serious RPV/UAV designer/developer/flyer, so I sent the link to him.

    Looks nice! What's the flight interface you've got on the machine? Do you just key in waypoints or do you actually sit at the controls somewhere in the distance?

    Turns out my grandson helped with the transmission module and control board design for this plane. He's planning of using the same components on a new plane he's designing. I'll ask him for more info about that. From his email reply to me:
    lol right into the power lines. The transmission module he's using i had a little bit of a hand in designing. along with the control board that's compatable with it. its what I was planning to use to control my uav with. people have gotten miles out of the system , I think 34 is the farthest without a booster. its output is 500Mw and the booster is 7-10 watts omni directional. though can be aimed with a patch antenna. I think at that point you can fly it to space ( sattelites only use 5 or so watts to reach the ground with a wide beam) I'd be furious if my plane hit wires :'(
