I built many versions of small UAVs from 1998-1999. This was before lithium batteries and I used a Cox .010 and .020 in my designs. The one shown here is 8" size and carries a color video camera and transmitter (1999 technology!) as well as a roll/yaw gyro system for increased stability. I flew this model in FPV mode many times and one version exceeded 20 minutes flight duration.
