Nodecopter London Event

16th March 2013

A quick and dirty hack using Leap Motion to control the Parrot AR Drone built at NodeCopter London 2013.


  • Boot up your AR Drone
  • Connect to it via wifi using your computer
  • Start up the script
  • Use your Leap Motion to control the drone
  • Move your hand over the Leap Motion device
  • Distance from the Leap controls the altitude of the drone
  • Moving your hand forward over the Leap makes the drone move forwards
  • Moving your hand to the left or right of the Leap strafes the drone left or right
  • Drawing a verticle circle in the air over the Leap makes the drone to a flip
  • Tapping with one finger in the air will cause the drone to land
