We love quadcopters here at Geek Beat, and the Parrot AR.Drone is definitely one of the leaders in that field, with an active and dedicated community of pilots.
With the Flight Recorder GPS package, AR.Drone pilots can record their flights and maneuvers both to become better flyers and to share (and brag about) their aerial accomplishments with others. And this opens another option – that of a piloting contest. Now through September 15, Parrot and Amped Wireless are sponsoring a YouTube competition for the most amazing flight video captured using the Flight Recorder. The winner will receive an Amped Wireless WiFi range extender and Parrot Zik Bluetooth headphones. Check out the post at the Parrot blog for full details.
To submit an entry for the contest, use the GPS Flight Recorder to mark the starting and ending locations of a flight. Post the footage from that flight to YouTube and tag the video with “ARDRONEGPSCONTEST”.
Good luck, and be sure to leave a link to your video in our comments below – we want to check out what you did!
