The Flying Donkey Challenge asks teams to create a UAV solution that can eventually circle Mount Kenya collecting and delivering 20 kilo payloads. The first subchallenge in this escalating task will take place between the 8 and 16 of November in Kenya. The final challenge, where teams have 24 hours to race around Mount Kenya, will take place in 2020 and teams are competing for a multimillion dollar prize. Solving the problem of supply delivery in places where infrastructure is poor or non-existent is seen as critical for health and economic well being.
