Very cool: The New York Times was at the Sparkfun competition and did a story on DIY Drones!

 

It will take me a while to live this quote down ;-) "“This is the future of aviation,” Mr. Anderson, 49, said. “Our children will not believe that people used to drive cars and drive airplanes. We are the weak link in the chain.”"

 

There's also a great video of one of the autonomous ArduCoper 2 runs, plus more of the AVC, here.

Who the heck is Nicholas Roy and does he ever get out of his bubble?

 

I don't remember seeing him at the competition

An age 49 quote would take some doing to live down.

Call me Mr. B-Roll.

At least my good flight was captured on video. There is always next year...

The editing on that video is awesome. Funny and sharp.
