Last day to register for Sparkfun's Autonomous Vehicle Competition

Today's the last day to enter a vehicle (drone or autonomous rover) in Sparkfun's AVC, which will be held June 21st in Boulder, Colorado. And if you're coming, don't miss DroneCon (the DIY Drones developer conference), which will be held in Boulder the day before.

Man, just under the wire, I almost forgot this year!  I just did it at noon.

I have my 3DR Pixhawk equipped Traxxas Slash autonomous rover chassis registered and approved.

I am ready for the competition in the autonomous vehicle Peloton Class.

That's my beloved copter in the pic above.   It's actually about to land instead of taking off.  You can tell because it doesn't have the tennis ball on the front.  Only one month to go and the pressure is mounting a bit!

Yikes! The registration mechanism is closed, but it is still technically the 21st. And where where did it say today is the last day?

K, just read the blog post on SFE from today that mentions that it is today, but, Mountain Time Zone,...... still is the 21st! I'm getting really bummed out right now if I'm too late! I just purchased a PixHawk with the intent to get my VTOL working fully autonomously, all for the AVC. ...... (arg)

Stephen, send me a PM with your email address and I'll see if I can put in a good word for you getting in.

I had the same issue where it said closed when i tried registering my additional one last night at 8:50 central time. I sent sparkfun an email.

I got a sneak preview of Leonard's copter, and I can't WAIT to see this thing go! :)
