At the Merced River Fair we provided outreach to the ecological science community as well as the general public by showing many of the functions unmanned aerial systems can perform in an agricultural or ecological setting. The main display was the AquaCopter, a waterproof quad-rotor perfect for research applications in rivers or wetlands. We also showed a fixed wing aircraft and a quad-rotor flying demonstration using the AR Drone.
