I've begun a project with a friend of mine to create a drone, and we're considering gearing the project towards a remote reconnaissance quad-copter, with live video feed through a tablet, instantly accessible on the field. Would this be allowed in an American Milsim op provided we achieve a drone license? I don't want to invest all of this money just to be told it's against the rules.

Following, would be interested in knowing as I am designing an autonomous fixed wing recon drone.

We just got finished with designing and planning. I'm a teenager, and the person I'm working with doesn't make a substantial amount of income. We're likely going to purchase the parts over an extended period of time, likely about 3-8 months, depending on a lot of variable factors. Again, this is assuming drone usage is permitted by AMS. Still waiting on a reply from staff. It would honestly be easier to make a fixed-wing plane-like drone, but they tend to require constant control and focus. What I'm planning to do with this quad-copter is have push-button controls, and having the camera be the only thing that I need to control manually. For example, pushing a button would trigger a system of commands that will cause the drone to ascend to a predetermined altitude and hover. Another button, and it will land at a predetermined DZ. We have plans to implement a command that will allow it to surround the AO in a circular pattern. It's going to be awesome, assuming all of these features are implemented. We have decided on the acronym F.O.A.R. (Field Observation and Aerial Reconnaissance).

School (in my case) and Work (In the case of the project lead), as well as financial strain (new car, possibly new house in the future), have severely delayed the project. No definite start time can be predicted. I will continue to post progress as we go.

UAV/UAG's are used in Milsim events. Read ruleset and you will find the dos and donts.
