Maybe you could tell how GPS controls the airplane. I don't know it works.
I am not an authority on pilotless aircraft. As I understand it, GPS coordinates are entered into a computer on board the aircraft, and a GPS unit sends signals to the receiver to keep the aircraft on heading. Telemetry could be sent to the ground, indicating speed, direction, altitude, etc., to keep track of where the aircraft is.
