High flyer drone

This is a list of components that I wish to install into a high flying personal drone/UAV. My goal is to attempt to get a small home made drone/UAV up to and higher than 50,000 feet and powered by a hybrid system of solar panels, batteries and a small RC gas engine to keep the aircraft aloft for up to 6 hours.

The concept designs for the aircraft is a fusion of these aircraft listed in the images below. Lockheed Skunk Works U-2 https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/be/Tr1a-95rs-alc.jpg
