2 UPDATED PSSC 1.An ability to remotely monitor remaining battery life (fuel gauge). 2.An ability to hover in a stable position (based on autonomous stability / control algorithm). 3.An ability to fly in any direction (compass orientation) at a variable speed and a stable altitude (based on autonomous stability / control algorithm). 4.An ability to take off/land (ascend / descend) while remaining level (based on autonomous stability / control). 5.An ability to remotely control flight functions (e.g., ascend, descend, hover, compass orientation, forward speed).
