I’m a new lover on the world of the drones. As a first drone I’ve bought the Parrot Disco (now discontinued). I got it because with some modding it can fly for 4 hours and for a maximum of 100 kms. AFAIK,there are no cheap drones able to do that. Now,the problem is that the Disco is a drone that can’t fly vertically. And it has some disadvantages. For example when it starts flying and when it crashed,if there is an human action,it can’t fly again. So,I’m very curious to know if there is a chance to create the perfect drone. Something like this VTOL drone :
BUT flyable through a 4G connection. I see that TOM uses the radio frequences,but it means that if the drone will fly very far away from him,the connection will be lost. With a mobile connection like the disco,this will not happens. Also,TOM says :
“Obviously it would be ideal to integrate the Arduino code into the flight controller, but that’s beyond my current coding skill level”
I imagine that using Arduino or even better,the RaspBerry Pi zero,it would be possible to make fly the drone with a 4G connection ? For how much time and for how many kms the drone will be able to fly ? I’ve found a guy who until some time ago was building this kind of drones,but now his website :
it is unreachable. Do you know if he changed website,if it can be reached somewhere somewhere else or if you are aware of something / someone similar to that ? thanks.
