@brennsteph You can build any track you would like and use basic driving commands found here to navigate! To learn how to use IR sensors and camera to make decisions while driving, you can follow our tutorials on Workbench. If you don't want to make your own field, you can purchase one here from us. If you are still having doubts or technical issues, use this link to set up a time and I would happy to speak with you. I hope this helps!

RE: Zumi Code
RE: Unable to start Zumi after firmware update.
Hey @DogEars, sorry for the delay! If it's saying "Zumi can't wake up" that sounds like the SD card may need to be re-flashed. When you say you flashed the latest firmware, are you flashing it from your computer, or do you mean a regular update?
Either way, I'll shoot you an e-mail to coordinate mailing you a replacement SD card. Meanwhile, if you could send the SD card you have so we can figure out what's going on for future cases, that'd be great.
RE: Collision Avoidance with CoDrone Pro
Hi @drone123 ,
You are correct that the sensors we have onboard for distance measuring are facing the ground. There are IR sensors in the front but they are for transmitting and receiving messages for drone "battles" and not for distance, unfortunately. You could try using the FPV camera for detecting obstacles. It is a separate module that we are no longer selling but if you could somehow get your hands on one that would be my suggestion! Although we don't offer support or tutorials, there are a few projects that I have seen on the forum that use it. Hope this helps!
RE: Pairing Test issue
@alpha You don't need to run all three functions You can stick with the last one only. The middle one is if you know your drone's four-digit ID. The example given uses '1234' but you can find out your drone ID by looking at the output once your drone pairs. Let me know if you have any more questions!
RE: Pairing Test issue
@alpha Try the following steps if you are having difficulty pairing:
- Disconnect and reconnect the BLE board to your computer. Make sure the BLE board is not connected to anything else but your computer.
- Check your device manager to verify which COM port is being detected. Go to the start menu and search for "Device Manager". In the window, check under the list of USB devices. If nothing is showing up, then try a different USB cable or port until it does.
- Once you can verify which port is being detected, try calling the pair() function with the specific port using one of the following:
drone.pair(port_name = 'COM3') drone.pair('1234', 'COM3') drone.pair(drone.Nearest, 'COM3')
Let me know if this works for you!
RE: Build Question
@mrschunsclass There was a mistake in the labeling of the battery. Sorry about that! Flip the battery in such a way so that the wire is pointing toward the back. If it's a tight fit, you can remove the dual-lock velcro and try orienting the battery vertically instead. As long as the connector reaches and nothing is puncturing the battery it will be fine. Thanks for the question!
RE: Hello, I'm Bryan...had a question about controlling a codrone pro
@bmartin_ascte Hi, thanks for the great question! You can pair to any drone in the room as long as you find it's 4 digit ID, so you could design an activity or mockup scenario where you write code and send it to another drone to "hack" it. Some other activities include a drone mission where the pilots fly it to a given location and send morse code signals by programming the LEDs. There are no security settings necessarily but you can design a curriculum around this theme!
