Default RE: World record

Thanks for the info from one and all. I'm designing an RC that will pilot itself for extreme distance using a GPS hooked to a palm pilot and digital attitude controls. I've got the Palm programmed and can easily control the servos, now I'm working on a design -- doing some experiments on fuel consumption so I know my fuel capacity.

Looks like someone did it from Canada to Ireland. I think I can do better.

Anyone have any links to any storied for this guy who did the longest flight? Maynard Hill.

Was going to use a standard wing, but now I'm thinking about a single engine channel wing with control and fuel in nacelles hung under on either side of the channel. Thoughts?
