I would like answer(s) to Justin's question too

Although as I understand the Piccolo already has build in monitoring system so that when in lost comm situation, the uav will still maintain normal flight plan until the time out period is reached, at which time the uav can either terminate the flight on the spot, fly to a predetermined location and terminate, or fly to predetermined location and if comm is regained, the uav may be return to land normally or in manual external pilot mode.

If comm. can not be regain, the piccolo can autoland by itself

If the autopilot locks up then the uav will crash anyway

so the question is why do we need the board?
