Recently I came across this post on flying AR.Drone 2.0 using Windows Store App. Those who are into coding can check for more details at the source.
The Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 is an awesome device packed with cool features. The drone contains two cameras, one pointed forward that streams live video, and one pointed downwards (for all your surveillance needs). Its got four powerful engines that make it fast and maneuverable. The drone’s firmware keeps it stable and level while stationary or performing maneuvers, handling a huge burden for the user. It’s a fun device to write code for, and even more fun to pilot when you’re done!
There are few projects that have created AR.Drone APIs that can be used for Windows 8 Desktop Apps. While in this post it shows how to fly the Drone using Windows Store App as the author Peter Dwersteg has built his own API compatible with WinRT.
