I am just getting started with a project to be able to control an Arducopter using one of my Leap Motion Controllers...has anyone else tried something like this? I am thinking I am going to make the controls very similar to those that you can use in Google Earth. Has anyone else played with Leap and Google Earth? Do you like those controls?
This is the only one I've seen so far: http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/controlling-a-quad-with-leapmot...
To bump this thread. Did you have any luck getting the Arducopter and Leap Motion talking?
I have had some basic luck...I am having issues getting the leap to fully control the helicopter. I am basically having it report itself as a joystick but I am having throttle issues
Yea that was my original idea too (reporting as a joystick). I've just got a Leap motion so haven't tried anything yet. But I was thinking that in fact the easiest way would be to use python scripting through mission planner, which seems pretty easy, and the Leap Motion SDK includes fantastic python support. I think something could be done quite fast with that(?)
