To Have fun with ArDrone QuadCopter.


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.

    Will you be able to get an actual quadrotor in and fly it? That would be really cool!
