No more waiting! Well, a tiny bit of waiting – just one sleep. Tomorrow will see the start of the 2016 UAV Challenge Medical Express competition. Ten teams have qualified from the original 60 teams that sent in their first technical report (known as Deliverable 1) back in September 2015. It has been an amazing year, seeing some teams develop new types of aircraft and new putting in a massive combined effort of many hundreds of dedicated team members. Anyone is welcome to come along and observe. If you can’t make it, then follow along by Liking this Facebook Page or following @uavchallenge on Twitter. Tomorrow is the day that the teams will show the industry scrutineers that their aircraft are safe to be released into their mission to recover Outback Joe’s blood sample. The UAV Challenge judges will also interview teams (interviews are scored!). The day’s briefing kicks off at 8am sharp! See you there (Dalby Model Aero Club, 743 Cecil Plains Road, Dalby, Queensland).
