About a year and a half ago I saw Jetpac’s video of their Spotter app and I remember thinking at the time that it would be so cool to get this flying on a drone. Some poking got me a little towards that goal but its not until the past week that I sat down and rewrote the code, integrated it with a quad, and did a little demo. The result can be seen in the video.

Unfortunately, it being autumn and this being the UK there was pretty much no window of decent weather to do a nice flight. Instead I had to make do with muddy boots, blustery winds, and frantic umbrella breaks due to rain showers. It was hard to keep the quad under control in the wind and hence the video is not as smooth as I’d like. Once the weather improves and I add a gimbal, things should be much better.
