The organisers of the UAV Challenge (CSIRO and QUT) are pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 Airborne Delivery Challenge. The event will take place on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October 2019 at Calvert Radio Aero Modellers Society flying field, Bourke’s Road West, Calvert, Queensland, Australia.
This year’s competition maintains the same mission as last year – saving Outback Joe from a medical emergency, but there are a few exciting changes. The most significant one for teams is that instead of monetary prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners, this year, all teams that qualify and attend the event will receive AUD$500 to help with expenses. The organisers understand that travelling can be expensive.
The Technical Committee are still finalising the new rules (with a new simplified format) and will release them mid-March.
All the details of the competition can be found on the High-School page. Registration will open when the rules are released and teams are encouraged to register then.
