RE: demo videos
We also have our weekly webinars on our Facebook page here hosted by the awesome Dir. of Education, @robolink_kristen, where we talk about many of the issues that come up, and how to troubleshoot them, or about the interesting things we've been working on.
We're definitely open to community contributed videos too! If you'd like to also submit your own content or projects, our Basecamp page allows for users to post their own projects, too!
Hopefully that's helpful!
RE: Newbie, how to control CoDrone after both controller and drone are turned on.
Hi there @gbarr! The CoDrone is a little different from other drones in that it's a learning tool to be used in classrooms, so we intentionally made it have a bit of a learning curve before you can just fly it around freely.
Here are our tutorials on how to program the CoDrone.
If you're interested in flying it with full control as a remote, you can take a look at this lesson for how to upload the default program.
Hopefully that helps! Let me know if you have further questions.
RE: Flight Commands (Movement) docs update
@vette99 You're right! We have a few edits we need to make to the docs. We'll make sure to update that. @robolink_whoseop can you make sure to fix the docs, and the library so they all use "takeoff()" instead of "takeOff()"?
Good catch, @vette99!
RE: Fly CoDrone in Square Pattern
Hmmmm, that's not good! It looks like the yaw power is a bit too strong, so it keeps trying to adjust for the amounts. I know the lesson shows -50 and 50, but can you try changing all those
yawvalues to -20 and 20 instead?
If you find that's better, we may need to change those code values in the lesson!
RE: Thank you Robolink
@garyt This is so heartwarming to hear! I've shared the post with our team. We're happy to hear the event turned out so well! Getting kids inspired to learn about and pursue STEM is what we're all about, especially inspiring more girls to get into the field.
I love the incorporation of the other areas of science, like the Mars rover and learning about physics concepts.
Please let us know how we can help you further
So much happy crying from our team.
