Whats going on in this X-47 is that its man out of the loop. Which technically means the aircraft is not flown by somebody its merely overseen by a person. This is artificial intelligence landing and making corrections not a person. The cool thing about man out of the loop is this can go on standby and circle an area for something like 80 hours without any input then when given a command, it will do what its told when its told. Like return to carrier or refuel in the air or strike a target. No human input is needed other than the command.

I would think remotely would be harder. I would think your depth perception would gone and speed.
What's going to happen when the see gets a little rough?
I'm no expert thou.
Wish we had a carrier pilot on here.
