I have been building and flying long distance and mountain designated UAV's . In most cases its viewed negative by the media and general public, but its cases like this, where these very capable machines have a real possible "job" that they can serve. I am sure that they will be implemented very soon for these type of searches, rescues and recoveries. I do have plans to fly/film and photograph this area, especially areas not easily reachable. Aircraft for endurance and multiple passes, but the GPS guided quadcopters are excellent for getting close with superb imaging after verifying a point of interest. I would volunteer airtime, if considered to be helpful at all.
