Hi! My name is Armaan. I’m a 13-year-boy from Massachusetts. This tutorial shows, as you can infer from the title, how to build a Raspberry Pi Drone. This prototype demonstrates how drones are evolving and also how big a part they might play in the future. I can definitely see myself waking up in 10 years and asking a drone to get breakfast for me. The drone uses Amazon Alexa, Amazon Web Services, IoT(Internet of Things), and most importantly a Raspberry Pi to run. It is meant to demonstrate and inform about drones and how they are improving every day. Hopefully you are successful and learn about drones in the process. Good luck and thanks for reading. -Armaan
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
