Student UAS

Just got back from this years AUVSI Student UAS Competition. My team (Utah State University) took 1st place this year using a paparazzi based platform. We recorded the highest score in the history of the competition. It was a very fun event and my hats off to all those who put it on each year.

  • Good, Congratulations... Hope I can Join in next year event.
    Can you describe here about your autopilot design concept?

  • Well lets see my guess is probably around 7000-8000 or more. Commercial autopilots don't come cheap
  • Do you have a ballpark estimate on what was spent on the best looking entry?
  • ~$3500. This got bumped up because of our use of higher end cameras and an IMU
  • Good! What was the total spent on this system this year?
  • Much more... Pictures will come once i get them from the guy who has the camera. Hopefully soon
  • Were they a little bit more receptive to you guys this year?
  • Congratulations!
