Russian Drone Conquers Everest!

The day began at 9 o’clock in the morning in Nepal at an altitude of just 3867 meters above sea level.  In less than one hour after taking off, the drone fulfilled its mission, it was reported.  Wind gusts reached up to 27 meters/second, but SKAT 640 had no problems.  Two government ministries in Nepal confirmed the 9333 meter altitude. This is a greater altitude than the official world record for light unmanned aircraft weighing under a ton.  Total flight time was 1 hour, 35 minutes.
