A GPS simulation for the Outback Challenge UAV contest

Dave from UNAV sent over the above GPS simulation results from a search and rescue pattern test for the upcoming Australian Outback Challenge contest. The course is 5x2 miles and Dave used the new PicoPilot groundstation software to plot the waypoints and monitor the simulation results.

It looks like there may be as many as 10 teams using PicoPilots in the Outback Challenge this year. Plus many using other commercial and DIY autopilots, no doubt. This year, the contest's second, promises to be far more competitive than last year. Anybody going who wants to file a report for DIYDrones?

I will be going to the Outback Challenge and I would be willing to try to report on the event. Or at least provide updates about how the teams are doing.
