Cool video on the Australian UAV contest (including high school contestants)

The folks behind the Australian Outback Challenge, an amateur UAV contest, have just posted a great video from their inaugural competition, held this September. It had two levels.

Nobody successfully completed either mission, but my Californian neighbors at Dionysus Design came closest in the second category and won on points. Here's the video:
