This week, I met up with a few of my friends and decided to attempt to control an A.R. drone from a computer. I was a very complicated process and we made many mistakes. However, today, we were able to get it to take off after two days of research and tests! Some sources we used to figure the process out included stackoverflow, nodecopter, instructables, and yahoo answers. In this post, I will describe to you what we did and how you will be able to code and control your A.R. Drone from your computer!
All you really need is the ar drone module from npm.
var arDrone = require('ar-drone');
var client = arDrone.createClient();
Yay! Now your drone should have taken off and landed. Our project is still in development. Any updates will be posted.
