STRATOGLIDER

This is a project to create a UAV using the 3D Robotics APM + a Zagi HP glider to be released by a weather balloon at 100,000+ feet above the Earth's surface into the Stratosphere; and, then return to a programmed landing location using the Arduino's autopilot feature with specific instructions on how to fly, and where to fly.
