APM at the Australian International Airshow

Hi all
We have had the privilege here in having the Avalon airshow every second year, this year, we had a few highlights that are of importance to this group.

1. which has been mentioned, CASA, (our FAA) have made lots of noise on helping us get Airborne, and

2. Bask industries had a stand, with the APM2.5 at Center stage. People were crowding around the stand, amazed at the product, able to play with the Mission Planner, and in general see how good Ardupilot is. 

I was amazed at the fact that there were a lot of UAV platforms at the Airshow, including multiple Multirotors. Yet Bask had the most people at their stand.

Are they really using clear acrylic as the frame material?

I believe the greatest achievement for the open source community, was having David Skinner as one of the speakers at:

where he spoke about: "Open Source UAS – Are they the way of the future?"

you can find the program with a short bio on David at:


and click on program.

Thank you David for a great job representing the open source community at a global stage.

Landing gear is polycarbonate, VERY forgiving.
