2012 Outback Challenge Documentary

A documentary called "Robots in Flight", following the events of the 2012 UAV Outback Challenge has now been released to Youtube:

A number of teams (such as CompassUAV, TGIF and the 1st placed CanberraUAV) used the APM as the flight controller in their airframes.

  • @Tilman - Channel 10 did all the filming and production. I've seen a few snippets on ABC (7:30 report I think) though.

  • Was that the Documentation produced for Catalyst?

    I remember they covered the challenge a while ago. But IIRC not in such great detail. It still looked familiar.

  • Great video... tells me more than anything that APM is the best.   Keep going guys with the improvements.   We really appreciate it.

    That's quite a list. Good luck and I'd love to be there and see you win again.


  • Thanks guys :)

    @jasonshort - we only won $10k because of the bottle drop malfunction, so we didn't complete the full challenge. We do intend to win the 2014 Challenge though.

    There's a list of all the teams in the 2014 Challenge at http://www.uavoutbackchallenge.com.au/index.cfm?contentID=50

  • Very enjoyable and informaive documentary. Thnx for sharing

  • Genuinely Inspirational.

    This is a superb video and has an excellent approach to presenting drones in a positive and useful way.

    And Team Canberra has certainly raised the bar -> Go Tridge, Stephen and Company.

    As a result of the impact this has had on me I am going to be putting together a page on each of the Wiki vehicle sites devoted to practical uses of our Copters, Planes and Rovers.

    These will be "works in progress" and hopefully others will contribute to them as time goes on as well.
