Remote Flight Demo supporting Tridge's Presentation to DroneCode Conference, San Jose, 23 March 2015

Andrew Tridgell connected to an RC plane with a Linux Autopilot in Canberra Australia while giving a presentation at the Embedded Linux Conference in San Jose, USA. This is the video we broadcast back to his presentation via Skype. It’s low res due to the requirement of using low bandwidth connection. In the background you can hear Andrew and the audience in San Jose. The plane was being controlled by Ardupilot autopilot software running on Linux at the same time a kernel was compiling.

A trip to the Canberra Model Airplane Club

"I visited your club last Sat to see how my friends are going with their plane for the Australian UAV Outback Challenge. I really had a good time.

I've been cutting my RC teeth with some park flyers and helicopters in an attempt to do some aerial photography so you'll probably see me from time to time. Fantastic place you have out there. Keep up the great work! Here's a short video of some photos I shot at CMAC.
