Cellular is nice for a plug-and-go solution, but I wouldn't depend on it to
control any kind of craft. It's not reliable enough, and the inherent
latency makes any kind of real-time control pretty annoying.

What would you do if you had a plane over a crowd of people, and the
authorities decide to shut off all cellular service? Not a good situation.

I don't really know much about the goals or scope of this project, but I'd
recommend some kind of direct radio control. Amateur radio operators build
in all kinds of custom controllers in RC aircraft.
