Naval research group launches 30 Pixhawk-powered drones

Another great swarming demo from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. Not a new record of planes in the sky (which is 50), but an impressive launch rate of nine drones in nine seconds. All Pixhawk-powered Skywalker X8s.

Awesome video.  The shots from below are fantastic.  ArduPilot inside it seems.  The launchers are super cool too.

This project is by GTRI to develop a swarming algorithm that will be used for ONRs LOCUST project. The Skywalkers are just a test platform until the software is ready to be installed in the tube launched drones in the video below.
