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

PDXDrones Inaugural Meeting
Portland State University Fourth Avenue Building (FAB)

Do you like drones (aka UAVs)? Do you fly, build, drive or program something that could be considered a drone? Then join this group of enthusiasts and let's get together and share experiences, success stories, crashes and hacking projects we're all working on!

We have a broad definition of a drone - its basically a device that is either remotely controlled or completely autonomous. It can fly, drive or swim. It can carry things or take pictures and videos. You can control it by line of site, via video link or by programming in its route ahead of time.

Dear Learners,

Do you enjoy learning and sharing knowledge to help people solve problems? Check out this video to see what we're about.

Do you want to learn about UAV drones? What is a memory leak?

We'll have two lightning talks and at the end of our session, we'll brainstorm and vote for a new interesting topic for the following week presentation. The winning idea will get the innovator of the week.

Join the fun!
