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.
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.
