i was surfing across youtube today and i came across some really complex autonomous flying. Thought id share with you and see what you guys thought of it. It was done by Stanford university students.

Much better. Thanks!

very impressive demonstration, a good step towards a heli that can takeoff, locate an object, retrieve said object, return, and land autonomously.

The servers at Stanford that host the research papers about this work appear to be offline at the moment. I would like to know more specifics about the hardware they are using to measure their onboard state with enough accuracy and and at a high-enough rate to enable this kind of learning and this kind of flight. Maybe they'll reboot their servers when they get to work Monday morning...

It seems like the Computer Science guys are starting to eat the lunch of the Aerospace Engineering controls guys on a regular basis these days...
