It would be quite simple in today's aviation. We use the sky writing
concept, except the air craft could fly in a straight line and we use
smoke oil, injected into the exhaust. just down stream of the exhaust
valves. The exhaust flame burns the smoke oil and it exhaust as white smoke.
The oil valve is very fast operating and a series of dots is very easy
During the Sun n Fun air shows, we buy it by the truck load in 55 gallon
However, now days, the issue would be, to find observers on the ground
that can read Morse code, and to keep it secret, we would need to go
back to the Cryptographers.
That's a long way from a Quadracopter, and a wireless camera.
