This YouTube Drone project broadcasts footage over a cellular data connection direct to YouTube. You use a Raspberry Pi, Camera Module and SixFab LTE shield with a drone kit to build the working device.
The YouTube Drone is a great project because it incorporates so many different Raspberry Pi features: video recording, flight control (either RC or automated), YouTube integration, and data network access.
It’s also fundamentally inspiring. Hooking up a drone to a Raspberry Pi with network coverage lets you test a lot of future technologies.
There’s potential to integrate it with computer vision technology, as well as automatic flight.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
