Let's get together and do some flying together in Virginia as a community. The location for this event is Ida Lee Park but instead of the main entrance go to the location at this link https://maps.google.com/maps?q=39.126452,-77.572317&ll=39.126556,-77.572322&spn=0.002314,0.004935&num=1&t=h&gl=us&z=18.
We have two beer challenges this time around.
1) A six pack of beer is offered to anyone who can fly autonomously around two objects that I will place in a field. One six pack for flying close around the outside of the objects in an oval pattern. Two six packs for a figure eight pattern or other autonomous fancy flying around the objects that impresses the crowd.
2) A security case of beer challenge. We will award a case of beer to anyone who can jam someone else's signal so they can't fly. Two cases of beer if you can take over someone else's drone. This challenge has strict rules for safety reasons. In order to participate, you must declare you want to take the challenge on before you start so we will know that you are doing this. Anyone found trying to mess with anyone else's equipment without their permission will be banned from the group. Sorry to sound so draconian, but if we are going to open this Pandora's Box we need to be careful about how do it. We are doing this in order to educate ourselves about the vulnerabilities of our equipment, not to encourage abuse of these vulnerabilities.
