UAS Challenge 2018 results

Grand Champions 2018 - <br />ITU Hedef  with Platinum Sponsor Rep Bill Biggs and Head Judge Alistair Cowin

UAS Challenge 2018 winners - Team Hedef, Istanbul Technical University, Turkey

 

When the Istanbul team arrived at the competition they moved like a well-oiled machine and delivered, despite the challenging weather conditions. They also won the Safety and Airworthiness Prize for which they displayed good organisation skills and a very positive air safety culture.  A really professional outfit flying a really capable UAS.
