  • Is there a list of the aircraft and AP's that competed?
  • Very cool and great to see others help out when needed! Looking forward to those pictures.
  • Hillar's autonomous flight went very smoothly. NCSU was also recognized with the Good Samaritan award for helping FIU out. Of the five people that supported their mission at the flight line, three were from NCSU. We helped him out last year and were happy to do so again.

    We have about 3 gigs of photos to sort through from the competition. I'll get those up sometime during this next week.
  • ■Florida International University Atto Powered! Great job Hillar!
  • Thats the correct website Alex, it usually takes them a few days to update the site after the competition is over
