  • The ball will be used for the Sparkfun AVC contest in Boulder, CO in a couple weeks. The tri-copter will go out over lake for about 350 meters and then drop the ball on a sandbar. If it lands on the sandbar you get 25 points. 

    I have moved the ball toward the tail since the above picture was taken. It interfered with a video camera.

    Bright and easy to see -- it does make a nice visual aid!

  • Whats the purpose of the green plastic ball up front ? Is it a visual aide ?
