Multicopters welcome at the Sparkfun Autonomous Vehicle Competition again!

Good news: After banning multicopters this year because of space/safety concerns, Sparkfun will be moving the aerial competitions to another location next year so all vehicles can participate. 

At this point, you might be asking yourself, "Self, how can they possibly allow unlimited entries, quadcopters, and massive-scale robots at their current location." Well, that's the catch. AVC 2013 won't be held at SparkFun headquarters and the aerial and ground competitions will run concurrently in separate locations.

This is great news as the quad team had a great time at the other location this year it will be great to have all together again.

Never going to have the same flavor in another location, but that’s the price of progress. The aerial competition should be on a large farm with no trees.  It would be a good way to burn a few thou for some publicity.
