Today's post is the start of an interesting looking series by Tom Kerkhove.
What is AR Drone
One of their other products is the AR Drone remote-controlled quadricopter that comes with two different hulls, one for indoor and one for outdoor. This quadricoper is 450 mm (indoor) & 510 mm (outdoor) big and is equipted with a 720p HD camera in front of it.
If you want to join me in the quest to combine Kinect & AR Drone or just want one to play around with you can buy on here!
Drone for developers
As you can guess there is no official SDK for .net as well and developing one myself is a no-go for me since I don’t have that much time.
Just to be clear, there are other repositories out there but this one is up-to-date and Ruslan kicks ... with his support!
Running the GitHub sample
This repo also contains a sample containing all the supported features!
Now the SDK communicates by using the WiFi-receiver of the drone so make sure that you’re connected to that wireless network!
Enjoy exploring and see you soon to start coding!
