Hi, 

First off thank you for organisiing a great event!

But, here's some feedback partiucularly associated to the flying demos. As presented they were totally uselessemoticon

Ideally the participants would have to demonstrate their skill and navigate an obstacle course. Where by the viewers can then judge their flying performances based on real world scenarios. We also need LIVE video downlink!!! I don't really care what they look like when they buzz around. I may be care about how loud they are but the most important thing for us broadcasters is image stability/quality. We need to be able to jusdge camera operating.

Set out some performance specs that can be measured against each other.

speed
payload
loudness
image stability
maneouvrability
daily cost
flight times
camera operating

It may even be worth doing a sideby side video output comparison so that you can easily judge performance.

Cheers,
Pasquale
