Hi Andy,

Actually it is doable. The TAM-5, 11-pound RC plane, flew 1,888 miles 
from Canada to Ireland over the Atlantic ocean in 38 hours still in 2003 

The distance from Puerto Princesa City, Philippines, to this reef is 
only 265 miles. And the technology is much better now. A RC plane of 
this small size is invisible to radars.

It would be about ten hours flight. Nowadays electric RC gliders can 
stay in the air times longer [2]. Certainly, such a flight is possible 
only with a good weather forecast for the whole route.

Best regards.
