The purpose of this 7th mission is to conduct a high altitude flight with the RP-UAV equiped with a GPS board, an autopilot and a video camera. The RP-UAV can be easily used for survey mission for tracking events.
The 7th test mission of the RP-UAV is : High Altitude survey with GPS.

Tests results : In this simulation of survey mission, the RP-UAV has demonstrated a great flight stability on the roll and pitch axis due to use of the auto-pilot. The GPS board has been used in passive mode and not linked to the controller board. The GPS accuracy during this flight mission was 6 meters. In future missions, the GPS control boad will be able to pilot itself the RP-UAV by controlling the yaw axis and the throttle for a full automonous flight and an altitude hold. The GPS board will soon be installed on the QRO-UAV.
