I think the pilot walked... Or he used a super good ground station and the person on the end was a spotter and collector for the drone so he didn’t need the return leg. But judging by the high quality of signal why wouldn’t he go further til either the battery go flat or signal die? This french flight record is in a shroud of mystery.@volate!lo
I'm sorry this mark wasn't achieved using your TelloFPV. It seems BlueJune's aTelloPilot is hard to win.
I didn't know anything about it. It's the first time I see this video.
Above all I congratulate Pilot Claudio Schulann for his mark. What he has achieved is incredible. I thought it was impossible to achieve something like that. It's hard to believe.
In fact, there are some intriguing details in his flight that I invite him to clarify:
First, I noticed he is very brave leaving only 43% of battery for returning a whole kilometer. As you know, Tello automatically stops about 10%. It lets him 43%-10% = 33% battery for returning trip. It seems that he is not very worried about the return trip, isn't it ? Maybe he did not have to go back ? Where did he landed ?

I'm shocked one kilometer away he is still getting 3 signal bars (max is four signal bars). That's about 70db. Maybe wifi repeater he is using is extremely good ? Maybe distance between pilot an drone is not so big ? I'll give a try that wifi repeater for sure.

Image quality is surprisingly good throughout entire flight, even at final turn. No glitches, no dropped frames, but... where is the final part of the flight and landing ? Why did he cut it ?
And finally, I discovered at the very end of recording a human figure in the middle airstrip, close the drone. Who is he and what is he doing ? Of course, I hope he is not the pilot walking after the drone.

Again my congratulations. I hope this excellent pilot comments his experiences here and clarifies these dark points.
All the best.
