I thought it was interesting how this 'drone' was a traditionally configured low fixed wing and nothing more outlandish. Normally, by removing the needs of a person wrt shape, size, mass, need to look out etc., the optimal design changes dramatically. But I guess it's much easier/cheaper/quicker to design something which has a large degree of semblance with traditional designs.

The RPAS will operate between surface and 2500 FT AMSL. As the RPAS will be operating Beyond Visual Line of Sight and has no Detect and Avoid capability, a Temporary Danger Area (TDA) will be established to facilitate the safe operation of the RPAS.
None at all?
Let's hope there's no puppyfarm crossing the runway at St. Mary's when it comes in to land... I assume it has some controlability/manoeuvrability at either end?
We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon.
