With just 1 week until we start traveling to Dalby for the UAV Challenge, the last couple of weeks have been spent performing final tests and fixes to our equipment. This has included all-up tests that simulate an actual UAV Challenge scenario, finalising our checklists and mission plans, and sorting out travel to Dalby.
Our all-up test from the perspective of Joe – watching the UAV land at the remote location. The blood sample is then loaded onto the UAV:

We have also been finalising our backup UAV’s (1x quadplane and 1x helicopter) and stocking up on spare parts and consumables we’ll need for our time at the UAV Challenge.
