Design Challenge: Build a better UAV, save rhinos

Hey Everyone!

Want to build your own unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)?

This December we are going doing a two weekend open-sourced design challenge to take an existing UAV design, make it better, and build it. What for? To save rhinos.

Presently rhino poaching is a horribly growing epidemic. By creating an inexpensive, effective, reliable, open source UAV we'll be able to help security teams respond to these fast moving and well-organized crime details.

We're working with local maker space ADX, locally developed design software Fusion 360, the PDX Drone User Group, and UAV professional Stan Hisel.

Come join us!

Event is Dec 7/8 & 14/15 (in the mornings) at ADX Portland. There is no cost to participate, just pay your way on your team's materials. Space is limited to six teams.

The timing of the challenge is set to coincide with a bigger competition called the Wildlife UAV Challenge which has $65k in prizes to the winner. If things go well in this tiny challenge it's a great springboard to move forward.

Here are two links with more details:

Very Best, Mike
