This paper presents the development of an electrically powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with wingspan of 2.5 m. A flight control system is constructed using small and light-weight components. The logical interconnection and schematic layout of the AFC (Automatic Flight Control) are presented. The UAV prototype has been successfully tested carrying a high resolution camera, and was able to acquire the images and the video of the fly zone and transmit them back to the ground station.
