Topic: Support for Travel to Ardupilot Unconference
Proposal type: Hardware [ ] , Software [ ] , Other [x ] : Travel Expenses
My teammates @TianChang_Yonah @disgruntled-patzer and I, from Yonah, will like to attend the conference. As active Ardupilot users and believers in the open-source movement, we have always sought ways to contribute back to the community with initiatives such as our recent forum release (Yonah's Nemo QuadPlane - Finally autonomous!). By attending the conference, we hope to share our learning experiences from our past 3 years of technical development, and benefit from the expertise of the developers. This will contribute to Yonah’s aim of delivering peace and comfort to rural areas through the utilization of autonomous drone technology.
We plan on arriving in Canberra on Wednesday morning and departing on the following Monday. We request partial funding for the airfare and accommodations. The quoted value includes two-way airfare (SIN->SYD, Economy) for two persons, as well as accommodation at Manuka Serviced Apartment for three persons. (One of the teammates will be in Australia during this period so his airfare is excluded)
Many thanks in advance!
