Congrats to Tridge and the CanberraUAV team for winning the 2012 Outback Challenge! The official results have just been posted:
Search & Rescue competition - FINAL SCORES In the end Canberra UAV were clear winners, finding Joe and making it... http://fb.me/1FWDJ5f81
Tridge and CanberraUAV team are core ArduPlane developers and the UAV is flown by an APM 2 autopilot. So proud of Tridge and the team! No doubt a full report of how it went will be coming soon.
[UPDATE: The ultimate goal of the Outback Challenge is to drop a water bottle near Outback Joe (the dummy on the ground in the picture above), and no team accomplished that this year (the CanberraUAV bottle got stuck). So although CanberraUAV won easily on points this year, the ultimate challenge still remains for future competitions.]
Congrats Tridge! Looking forward to hearing the details! My bets were always on you actually!
thanks everyone! I'll post a full report when I'm back in Canberra in a few days
Great News! Congrats
