Question about get_opt_flow_position (Can I track how far I've gone?)



  • I have your example and it gives me x&y coordinates at the start, but it does not update as the drone moves. Is there anyway to track how far we've gone? Can I pitch forward for 10 feet, roll right for 15 feet?



  • Sadly, no. The sensors aren’t sensitive enough for that. An issue I’m trying to resolve myself as I’m trying to have it fly semi autonomous, and within a bounded area, but the drone natively on its own can’t do that either. Don’t try to “calibrate” to zeroize the X/Y either. I’ve runs tests to get reliable and consistent X/Y mapping/flight and it capable. I’ve even tried landing, “calibrate” to try to reset the X/y but alas.
