Abstract

To Have fun with ArDrone QuadCopter.

Outline

Ar Drone is a flying Quadcopter. It also comes with an awesome Binary API. People have written wrappers over the API in Node.js. So basically what we can do is make the quadcopter do interesting things like fly and move, flip with a few lines of javascript.
