Date: 10 February 2013
Location: Deakin University Melbourne Campus, Burwood Highway, Burwood (here)
Objective: Successful autonomous flight
Hey all, Firstly, thanks to Tim for suggesting/offering Deakin University.
There are a few places to fly at Deakin, but Tim recommends that we meet at the second carpark on Holland Ave (approx 200m North of Burwood Highway) and fly around Bennettswood Reserve.
We're hoping everyone who can make the meet will have a successful autonomous flight under their belts before the end of the session. Ideally, you would have been able to practice before the meet, but it's not necessary.
It will also be a great opportunity to meet the new faces that have recently joined the group.
Given this is Melbourne and the weather can change every 5 minutes, we will just have to monitor and see if it's still good to go closer to the date. However, it would still be a great opportunity to catch up, see what's new and how things have been going.
What to bring
* UAV plus all necessary equipment - including laptop if you want to try autonomous flight
* Ground based HD video equipment - if possible
(I will have a 70x optical zoom SD video camera w/ tripod there, but it would be great to have some ground based HD footage)
* Drinks / Snacks
* Slip, slop, slap gear
If there's anything else, please feel free to comment below. If you could also indicate if you're able to make it that would be great. Hope to see you there.
