How to Install

Installing cylon.js with ardrone support is pretty easy.

npm install cylon cylon-ardrone

How to Use

var Cylon = require('cylon');

Cylon.robot({
  connections: {
    ardrone: { adaptor: 'ardrone', port: '192.168.1.1' }
  },

  devices: {
    drone: { driver: 'ardrone' }
  },

  work: function(my) {
    my.drone.takeoff();
    after((10).seconds(), function() {
      my.drone.land();
    });
    after((15).seconds(), function() {
      my.drone.stop();
    });
  }
}).start();

How to Connect

The ARDrone is a WiFi device, so there is no additional work to establish a connection to a single drone. However, in order to connect to multiple drones, you need to perform some configuration steps on each drone via SSH.
