I guess all the clues were there from his tweets. Interesting video that shows the scene of the drop and what the guys at Joe were up to. Especially interesting is the radio chat. Little bit disappointed that he was not hidden a little better, the white topped post and car would have stood out very well. It remains an impressive result, flying 2km and then looking within a box roughly 4x6km in size.

The organisation and enthusiasm of the team running the event shines through, its the best UAS competition by far.

Looking forward to seeing what happened with Team Robota.
