Team pictures will be posted in the coming weeks. The organisers would like to thank the groups to the great soul in which they competed along with the event sponsors for their continued support.
Day 3 of UAV Challenge Week saw the conclusion of the Queensland Government Airborne Delivery Challenge. The event was postponed yesterday due to poor weather but now was a beautiful day, from start to finish. The previous six teams the running order occurred to the field at 7.30am in ideal conditions. In the long run, it was a close contest.
We couldn’t run these occasions with the volunteer support of others who commit many hours of their time to the UAV Challenge and this support.
In third place was PH Falcons in Palmdale High School in California. Their very best drop was 0.4m.
“The feeling of flying a camera while remaining on the ground is a new and amazing experience for me,” said Yann Arthus-Bertrand. “We can shoot on aerial pictures and I am convinced that I’ll continue using drone technology for my job in the future. When filming the environment and the women who are the heroes of the film I wanted to be as adaptable as possible. A drone is incredibly easy to use, which eased our work in this significantly. ”
The groups which did not score well but utilized shedding systems amazed the organisers. It’s excellent to see high-school teams applying such systems and we’re sure that these will enhance in the future.
Since July 2017, DJI was working closely together with Yann Arthus-Bertrand, co-director Anastasia Mikova and their production crew on several location shoots such as Portugal, the Republic of the Congo and China to ease adoption and accessibility to the early deployment of their Zenmuse X7 camera with its Super 35mm detector, which was ideal with this large-scale movie project. This efficient, high-quality cinematic solution in conjunction with this Inspire 2 drone was an ideal match for its vision of an artist who had previously revealed the beauty of aerial photography, shot from a helicopter, even in his UNESCO-sponsored picture tome “Earth from Above” which has sold over 4 million copies worldwide.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand’ldquo & s film;Woman” is expected to be released in 2019.
The winner (and also greatest Rookie Team) was Sky High from William J. “Pete” Knight High School in Palmdale California. The secret of the success was three drops that are . Their accuracy was fantastic and they attained drops of 3.62m, 0.18m and 1.04m. One of those drops was gentle enough not to exceed the effect limit and that was enough to put them first place.

Second place went to Blue Birds, too by William J. “Pete” Knight High School. They did drops, though they all impacted above the 75G & ldquo; rdquo & survival; limit.
The Insitu Pacific Airmanship Award was given to the Millennium Falcons due to their professionalism and great team attitude.
DJI, the planet ’s chief in image stabilization systems and civilian drones, has appointed French aerial photographer and film director Yann Arthus-Bertrand as DJI Master. For the first time , the legendary artist made a decision to deploy cinematic camera technology and DJI drone when shooting the movie “Woman. ” The DJI Inspire 2 drone with a Zenmuse X7 camera was used on location, backed by a DJI team.
“After the leader of aerial photography adopts DJI technology happens,” said Ferdinand Wolf. “Our crew helped Yann to capture. DJI is proud to assist this great artist in his devotion to highlight struggles and the accomplishments of humankind and to draw attention to the need to preserve atmosphere and our world. ”
