My main objective is to develop a small application to send the drone to a waypoint at a scheduled time, then return home. Would this course help me (even just a bit) towards achieving this goal?
Hi there MFlita!
Both courses currently offered at the Drone Dojo (Drone Programming Primer, How to Build a Raspberry Pi Drone) would greatly aid you in accomplishing your goal. If you’re more concerned with the software/coding side of your task, I’d recommend the programming course. This course shows you how to right missions in python that fly a drone to specific waypoints.
The course drone in ‘How to Build a Raspberry Pi Drone’ is linux based, so it would be very doable to run your waypoint script at a scheduled time with perhaps a CRON task.
Hope this helps!
