I got a drone and wanted to play with it during HackTX.

What it does

You control a drone using the Sensel Morph.

How I built it

I used a python library that sends messages to the drone via it's own wifi network.

Challenges I ran into

Finding a platform to even develop on was half the hackathon. Other than that, syncing the different actions of the drone was very challenging.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

That I got a drone to fly via my own code, and the controls are decently robust and stable.

What I learned

Windows is extremely frustrating for development. I learned about sending messages via wifi and some new technologies.

What's next for Sensel Drone Control

Rotation. Panorama picture taking. Taking group pictures.
