In this weekly meet we will continue 'stratogizing' our Stratoglider project (http://www.meetup.com/RedMountainMakers/events/139018292). A UAV (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unmanned_aerial_vehicle) using the 3D Robotics APM (http://3drobotics.com/apm) + a Zagi HP (http://www.zagi.com/zagi-electric-wings/zagi-hp-without-motor-esc-or-battery) glider to be released by a weather balloon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weather_balloon) at 100,000+ feet above the Earth's surface into the Stratosphere (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stratosphere); and, then return to a programmed landing location using the Arduino (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arduino)'s autopilot feature with specific instructions on how to fly, and where to fly.
