Disaster Recovery Drone Design to Stay Aloft 5 Days

As reported by Statescoop.com, “The drone has passed initial tests after being modified to fit the FAA’s regulations for small drones, which required the payload and amount of gasoline to be reduced to meet the FAA’s overall weight limit of 55 pounds. Future tests are needed to determine if the UAV can actually fly for more than five days straight”
