Today -15 C outside and I did my first distant flight using mobile network for FPV and control. Direct visibility is not required.
Round trip about 3 km and most distant point is about 1 km.

4G GSM drone

Instead of building quad controller board from scratch (my attempts to do this are here and here the better way is to change a concept a little.
On this quad below I use NAZA M V2 flight controller and 4G receiver that links NAZA to internet.
By this setup I can use all neat features that Naza provide: great stabilization, GPS position hold, return to home etc., and control quad via internet by FPV. 
This add-on 4G receiver board can work with any other flight controller not only with Naza.

What it gives - unlimited range within GSM network coverage and FPV via same GSM link.
On another end - contorl panel on iPad and 4G wifi router.
