3D Robotics had a great weekend at the First Annual MultiRotor Challenge. We were there both Saturday and Sunday and competed in most of the events, including a fully autonomous demo mission with a Stock 3DR Hexacopter. In the Auto-Land Competition, APM powered Multi's got 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place! We also won 1st place in the Pilot's Choice event for the coolest looking MultiRotor with the X8 Octocopter (complete with a color FLIR Camera). One lucky fellow won a brand new 3DR RTF Quad kit in the Raffle!


We met a lot of great people out there, and it was a great chance for builders and pilots to show off their hard work. If you are a multirotor fan, experienced expert, or an aspiring multirotor pilot, this is the place to be! We look forward to next year's event, and judging by the response, this event will get bigger and bigger each year.  For more info, visit:




See you in 2014!
