UAV Challenge Diary (Day 3)

By | September 29, 2016

Today was the final flights of the UAV Challenge, then the awards and presentation.

As always, the UAV Challenge organisers have posted a good summary of the day: https://uavchallenge.org/2016/09/29/final-day-of-medical-express-2016/

From our perspective, we were content to watch and chat with the other teams.

We had the team photos and awards ceremony around mid-afternoon. CanberraUAV came 1st place (though we weren’t eligible for the $50,000 prize).

The plan from here is to relax for 1 day and start the long drive back to Canberra on Saturday.

We’ve had an awesome time a the UAV Challenge! – many thanks to CSIRO/QUT for organising the event (with assistance from their many sponsors).

It was great the meet all the other teams too; we’ve made many more friends and spent hours discussing the finer points of building and flying UAV’s. There were even a few students from UQ looking to enter a team in the next UAV Challenge.

All in all, we’ve had an awesome week!
