This disclosure provides a solar rechargeable aircraft that is inexpensive to produce, is steerable, and can remain airborne almost indefinitely. The preferred aircraft is a span-loaded flying wing, having no fuselage or rudder. Traveling at relatively slow speeds, and having a two-hundred foot wingspan that mounts photovoltaic cells on most all of the wing's top surface, the aircraft uses only differential thrust of its eight propellers to turn. Each of five segments of the wing has one or more motors and photovoltaic arrays, and produces its own lift i...


1. A method for a mission controller at a ground station to control an aircraft, comprising:identifying a plurality of communication subsystems between the ground station and the aircraft, wherein the plurality of communication subsystems are at least partially redundant; establishing communication between the ground station and the aircraft using a first communication subsystem of the plurality of communication subsystems; operating the first communications subsystem as a communication link for the mission controller to control the aircraft; monitoring ...
