NASA Ames UAV field trip! (Sept 2)

Chad Frost, the manager of the NASA Autonomous Systems and Robotics department, has kindly offered to give a dozen lucky DIY Drones members a tour of the UAV facilities at NASA Ames in Mountain View, CA. This is a totally unique experience (I've done it before for a Wired Science PBS TV episode) and totally worth taking a few hours off work for! The date is Wed, Sept 2nd, and we're shooting for an 10:30 am arrival, staying through lunch. Chad will give us a tour of ~3 UAV projects. You'll make your own way to NASA Ames and park in the visitors' center, and Chad will escort us through security. Due to NASA regulations, this is limited to US citizens and no more than 12 people. Sign up in the comments below. Futher instructions will come closer to the date.

    Okay, we're now at 12 (including me). Comments from here on will constitute the wait list, in order. I expect that one or two on the current list will drop out over the next two weeks due to the usual unforseen circumstances, so please continue to put your name down and I'll confirm how many from the waitlist can come a week before the event.
  • I would LOVE to go! I am in Sacramento, but I travel to the bay a lot. I have the blipduino and am looking to start on my easystar project soon.
  • Man I wish I was in CA during this time. Oh well, please bring back a trip report - LOL :)
  • If there's room, I'd like to join.

    Are cameras allowed?
