    The mind boggles, how many laws ere broken in that video? Line of sight, altitude, over government property, where to start.?

    Anyway, now the cool stuff. how about some details on what battery, props, FPV, tx etc were used? At least it was mostly over farms although seeing it whiz by probably prompted a few calls about spy drones snooping on chicken farmers.

    World record - Cool. Do you have pictures or video of the Guinness people presenting you with a certificate?

    Did you have location telemetry, or were you flying IFR (I follow roads) ? :)

    "don't try this at home" :ugeek:

    Maximum altitude 100 m at the beginning of the trip (see with the OSD).
    Altitude fall throughout the trip.

    Very impressive!!

    Are you based in France ? I am based in the south of France (Antibes).

    Are you busting the signal or your TX some how. I could not recognize, is it a Futaba?

    Were you right at the limit of your battery. I noticed you took your time to land.

    Any more details on battery, telemetry, TX booster (if any) will be appreciated.

    Keep the good work and continue having fun.

    Yes, at a minimum, a high school diploma. A place where they teach you social etiquette.
