At first, we planned to launch the AR.Drones outside the building, but since the weather in Moscow wasn’t navigable, the competition was moved to the lobby of the Digital October technocentre that hosts the PHDays 2012 forum.
After a test launch or two, AR.Drones took off followed by surprised looks of the forum guests, and the contest participants started.
The winner, by the way, not only raised the team score, but was also presented with the captured AR.Drone. At the end of day, the first drone stays in Russia, and the second goes to the USA with his new owner - Matt from PPP.
Other teams will do the same.
