Day 1 of the 2015 UAV Challenge

The first day of the 2015 high-school UAV Challenge has been completed. Today was a day where the teams presented to the judges and also showed the scrutineers that their aircraft are safe to fly and that they have a safe backup pilot as part of their team. There are 17 teams taking part and all teams presented well and passed their static scrutineering. Half the teams had passed flight scrutineering when a series of storms forced the day to be be shortened. Teams will come back tomorrow bright and early, finish flight scrutineering and then start the competition flying. At this stage we are predicting that we will use the Adverse Weather Day on Thursday. More storms are predicted for tomorrow.
