@GEMSLPC We recommend using Blockly because we are actively maintaining that site and can offer support. Blockly will run on most Windows, Mac, and Chromebook computers. Chrome is very easy to update and oftentimes it updates automatically. Unless the student's computer is an old laptop that may not have Bluetooth BLE built-in, you should not have any issues using Blockly in the class.
Chromium is not a stable browser so we recommend using Google Chrome for programming in Blockly for both CoDrone and CoDrone Mini. Chromium had trouble pairing to CoDrone so please use Google Chrome! Chromebooks, Mac, and Windows are all welcome for Block coding as long as you have a USB port on your device. Thanks for your question!
@Joe I responded on your other thread as well, but please use Blockly which doesn't need a driver. Do you mind sharing where you are getting this information about a driver so that we can take those lessons down? Thank you!
@joe We have removed support for Snap! and we have officially transitioned to Blockly because the drivers are not compatible with Chromebooks. Blockly is compatible with MacOS, Windows, and Chromebooks and you do not need the BLE board. All of our setup information and lessons can be found here!
@ronan1 Our documentation for getting the sensor data is listed here. I hope you find this data useful for your project! I have seen projects before that display live sensor data in a GUI but I am not sure if this what you were looking for. Good luck!
It worked for me, so it may work for your,
1-power on and pin1 on'
2- while program is uploading and trying to sync for 10 times, repeatedly push bluetooth reset bottom, one of the time they will sync with each other and upload is hopefully is done.
@orcawolf123 For the missing joysticks, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and a link to this forum post for our reference. For your flying issues, it sounds like you have a damaged motor shaft or some debris in the propellers. This video goes over some CoDrone troubleshooting. If you need further assistance, let us know!
Let me know if I understood your question correctly. Once you upload code to the SmartInventor board it will remain there until you upload another program. For example, the default flight controller code comes with the kit, but if you have uploaded another program to it and want to use the flight controller again, you will need to reupload in Arduino. Go to the toolbar and find File>Examples>CoDrone>Controller>Flight Controller.
