Back in the late 90’s I started working as a consultant for an engineering company. They developed master planned communities with 100’s of acres of land. They needed a way to monitor construction along with environmentally sensitive areas. With my background in model airplanes I came up with an electric airplane in 2001 that had a medium format film camera and a video down-link.
Below are images of my 1/4 scale 109″ wingspan electric cub along with an aerial image taken at about 1000 feet up.
