ESP32 Controller for Tello Drone
I want to introduce the DroneBot Workshop community to a project that I am working on.
General information can be found on my GitHub project page:
Some YouTube videos are available from the project page.
The controller can be built from off-the-shelf parts or I can provide a kit with all the parts included.
In addition some PCB options for the controller will also be made available shortly.
Both the kit and PCBs will be available from a web store link once I have completed setup of the site.
If you want more direct information you can use the email: jsolder*at*iotinurhand.com.
I would be glad to discuss the project in follow-ups to this post.
Using the bluepad32 board package:
the controller will connect to a wide variety of video system gamepad controllers.
I also have recently developed a Tello "simulator" that allows the controller be tested without a Tello drone. You just need another ESP32 and some LEDs and an OLED display like the one used for the controller itself.
