    Going on its stats:

    25mins flight time
    15m/s max speed
    1500 seconds = 22'500m

    A steady cruise at 10m/s / 22.4mph / 36 kph would do the 15km in its flight time.

    It would have to be an autonomous flight 1 way.
    Good luck trying to find the Phantom with no control or FPV. ;)

    If it's an autonomous flight, wouldn't you expect to find it on the destination? :)

    Doable if you are following in a vehicle.
