Hello @aaditpanchal ,
If you are using the controller, make sure the UART (which connects the Bluetooth board to the SmartInventor board) cable is disconnected. Only the micro USB should be connected

RE: CoDrone wont hover properly
Hi @aaditpanchal !
There are a few reasons that your drone might be bouncing on the floor. If the room is dark or the floor is too reflective, the optical flow sensor cannot see patterns in the floor. If you think you need to adjust the trim, try downloading the Petrone app and use it to pair to your CoDrone. In the settings you will find an option to set the trim.
Let me know if this works!
RE: Investigations in Class
Hi @gregoryconely !
Sorry for the delay! We have recently updated our Basecamp lessons to program CoDrone with Python. It requires an installation of Jupyter Notebook which is an interface that allows you to write code and text together in one documentation. One advantage is that you can separate code into separate cell blocks. One cell can contain pair functions and run while adjusting and running code in another cell. It eliminates the need to repair or upload code and you can run new code instantaneously! Our Basecamp Lesson shows you how this works.
Unfortunately, the Jupyter lessons are only set up for Python and you would not be able to use Arduino. I look forward to hearing from you if you decide to implement this in the classroom. Let me know if you need any help!
RE: Trouble with throttle
Hi @Timur-A ,
It sounds like you may have forgotten to send the command in Snap. Setting the throttle will only set the value but your CoDrone will not move without a "Send Command" block. Check out Step 5 in Lesson 2F: Flight Movements to see what this looks like. Let me know if this does not fix your issue or if you have any more questions!
RE: Calibration button fell of the Codrone.
Hi @Dr-JelTech ,
How long have you had your CoDrone? This can happen if you have pressed the button too many times or from general wear and tear. If you have a soldering iron and feel comfortable doing a home repair, we can set up some time to walk through that process with you!
