Re: UAV Recon Possibility

Putting a depth sounder on a RC boat with some telemetry to feed back the depths feels like it would be more useful.

It could be made to zig zag ahead of the mother ship and show actual depths on an overlay on the chart plotter.

This would save quite a few groundings if used on the south coast of Grenada alone.

Me, I guess I will still be standing up and looking over the dodger while I enter on a day with good light.
