Country airport will work fine. Reason for the location to be in VA or WV is that it is the half way point between myself and one of my teammates. (He's in Philadelphia)

We are working with the FAA. Note, Although I am an AMA member, AMA rules forbid autonomous flight. We do not consider this an radio controlled airplane but rather a UAV. Such that we would be breaking AMA rules if we were to fly at a AMA sanctioned field.

I had thought of the small airport idea before. Almost seems like the airport guys would prefer you to lauch right there so they would now what we're doing reather then the reqired telephone call to the local ATC.

Cheers, Lawrence
