So there have been some sleepless nights recently as the deadline for the Outback Challenge second deliverable passed this afternoon. I managed to get my report in by the skin of my teeth after some email troubles (still waiting on the confirmation from the organisers :S ).
Each team had to submit a technical report that details the design of their aircraft and their risk management strategies. We also had to compile a video that demonstrates our on field setup procedure, takeoff and landing and how the aircraft handles carrying and dropping the payload.
I’ve compiled a playist of all the D2 videos I could find on YouTube. Of the 53 teams that passed the first milestone I could only find 12. Some teams may have been using private links, while others may not have used YouTube. However I can feel the field shrinking.
My video is included in the playlist above, but if you’re only interested in that one, here it is:
The competition certainly feels like it’s heating up!
UPDATE: Just got the confirmation email that my submission was received (phew).
