Fourty-Nine: shortest, least boring

Open source drone races.


I have a longer version in my head, but it's late I should be in bed by now. I just thought I should put this out there. Maybe somebody more driven will take it somewhere.

Ideas were meant to be shared so they can blossom. So make it blossom. :)

  1. Hi, I already participated in an open source drone race - sort of :-). It involved a lot of flying drones: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117353722095228147281

    Your blog posts could get some more links. Interconnecting information is everything in this digital world.

    Do you know about Open Source satellites? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/575960623/ardusat-your-arduino-experiment-in-space

  2. Wow another one of those rare comments I get occasionally. Hi Johannes! :)

    Maybe I should aim for short and not so boring posts with some links as you suggested. :)

    Landkamp looks extremely cool. Probably should be replicated in Australia so I can go and drool over all the cool drones. :) I have to say though the race I have in mind is several orders of magnitude harder than anything I have seen so far on the net. I tend to dream up projects way harder than what current capabilities of hobby level organisations and technologies. Probably because I have no idea what is technically feasible, so I don't have those constrains when I think about what I would like to do.

    I have recently added a link to the top "UAVforge" at the end of the list, I wanted to post a rant about that for a while now. I might combine all of that and this crazy idea of mine into one blogpost. The issue is that it will be one of those boring ones again.
