Brian Wolfe wins T3, Round 7!

Another great run by Brian Wolfe with his custom PicPilot autopilot, and he wins Round 7 of the T3 competition--the autonomous takeoff and landing round! Second place goes to Mark Griffin (Paparazzi), Third to William Premerlani (UAVDevBoard), followed by Riccardo Kuebler (UAVDevBoard) and Krzysztof Bosak (EasyUAV).

This was a tough round--not all autopilots can do autonomous takeoff and landing--so hats off to the winners. They're all real UAV pros, as shown by their consistent high performance in multiple T3 Rounds.

I'll announce the next round this weekend, and it should be a bit easier (and fun!) to encourage lots of entries. Plus it's summer--what else do you have to do??

Full list of winners and standing after 7 rounds below. Huge thanks to our judge, Gary Mortimer, who has handled the difficult task of reviewing and grading the entries (requiring the smarts of Einstein and wisdom of Solomon) with charm, good humor and constant encouragement. We couldn't do it without you, Gary!

    Guess I follow it so I know exactly what people use, once I finish flying at FIA 2010 later this week I might make a table up. I think there have been a couple of airframe changes in there so not sure how to do it.
  • But it would be nice in the table rfor comparison reasons rather than having to wade through the lengthy thread....

    Its all in the thread Hein one way or another. Well done to everyone again, hope you all have a smashing round next time.
  • @Chris , would be interesting to post the type/model of craft used by each entry ?
