>> The final flight of the day was from Canberra UAV. Many had been eagerly anticipating this flight as the team won the 2014 UAV Challenge Search and Rescue and came first in 2012. There were high expectations and Canberra UAV delivered! Their strategy was to use a large quad plane as the retrieval aircraft and a helicopter as the support aircraft and communications relay. Both aircraft took off with no issues and both transmitted to the farm, a trip of just over 20km.
That was an interesting story--pity about the helicopter.
