First, I would like to say thanks for letting me into the group and allowing me to tap into your expertise. I intend to get better at this stuff but right treat me like I'm completely new to this tech.
I’m looking for a drone to teach code with.
I want something that I can download and edit programs. For example; I would like to be able to download code to fly a rectangle at a certain altitude and length. I would like to be able to edit this program to change altitude and length of sides. I would like this type of editing to lead to creating new programs.
List of needs:
I need to be able to download and edit the code from a Chromebook.
I need this to cost under $800
Longer’ish battery life would be nice. Running each program wouldn’t take long in itself, but having a class of 10 kids each test their programs in the same hour could require a long battery life, or at least extra batteries on hand.
A camera would be nice.
Being able to add sensors would be great.
What do you guys recommend? I’m open to ideas and suggestions. I’ve done a lot of internet research and haven’t come up with anything conclusive as to what I need. Pixhawk and Parrot ar.drone 2.0 seem to come up a lot in my searches.
