looking to buy programmable quadcopter

Unread post by trevor80 » Sat Jan 05, 2019 2:08 pm

Hi All,

Does anyone have/know where I can buy a programmable quadcopter?
The examples Ive seen use the Mavlink protocol with dronekit (python).

if anyone knows where I can buy one or has something similar for me, let me know.

Thanks and kind regards,

Trevor :D


I managed to buy a Ryze DJI Tello Minidrone.
it has an SDK that you can use to interface Python code with.

There are cool projects on the net like image tracking and object detection.
Check out these examples:

I bought the drone at AudioLens in Canal Walk for R1799. Gonna have some fun now.

DJI Drones also have an open SDK, and they are proven to be very reliable. Better than the opposition...
