Drone Master – notes from the developer (Logic Consulting)
Drone Master is a multi control for your AR.Drone, offering three new ways to control your drone. It is not a standard RC style controller. Do you get confused using RC controllers? When the drone turns towards you, do you confuse left and right? Then clone control mode will help you.
You must have a Parrot AR.Drone quadricopter to use this app.
The autonomous stalking mode and light controls will work on any iOS 4.0+ device.
The other control modes require the gyroscope currently only found in the iPhone 4, 4th Generation iPod touch.
Drone Master gives you three methods of control.
1. Clone Control: The drone matches the movements of your device (iPhone 4, iPod) for pitch, roll, and yaw. This is a first of it’s kind app. No other controller lets you control yaw. It is probably the easiest method of control for anyone as you can use only one hand. If you have multiple drones and devices, you can fly multiple drones at the same time by stacking your iPhones/iPods.
2. Stalker Control: Object Tracking comes to the app store… Makes the drone automatically follow either hull tapes or other hulls.
3. Boat Control. Control your drone with a pilot stick. Tilt either left or right and the drone will yaw and roll in that direction. Push forward for more throttle, or pull back to reverse. Makes the drone act like a boat or airplane. You need lots of room for this control.
BONUS: Full control over the preset light emitting diode patterns. Our favorite is the “Green Red Snake”.
