Drone Position Controlling Demonstrated using Naze32 & Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #raspberrypi
In the video below by Aldo Vargas he shows some interesting drone positioning techniques including hover, circular, and figure-eight loops. Built with a naze32 flight controller and Raspberry Pi, he demonstrates how speed and trajectory are a compromise of weight and drone configuration.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

What would be very interesting is to see if the vehicle could be programmed to perform these same flight instruction against a relative position instead of a fixed one… for example… do a figure 8 flight path where the intersection of the 8 is 1 meter above my head. Now if i walk or move the vehicle would continue to do the figure 8 but it would move the flight path to correspond with the moving position of my head.
I too thought something similar. You can see Aldo begins to demo this concept where he’s intentionally moving the drone around with his hand, and it returns to 0. So the foundation is there. More to come hopefully!
