Big Iron Farm Show to Demo UAVs in Fargo, North Dakota

The large Big Iron farm show in Fargo, ND is showing off UAVs as a daily demo this year.  After they flight demo, there will be a data demo of products, I am not sure what products the data demo will present, but it will be a good show for the farmers who show up from around the region.  The flight demonstrations are 1-3pm daily and the data demo is right after at 3pm. This will be setting the stage for commercial UAV sales or contracting starting September 2015.  Big Iron runs from September 9-11, 2014 this year.  The demo flights are overseen by the Academy of Model Aeronautics with assistance from the North Dakota State University Extension Service.
