Great tips and advice can be found at

  1. This is awesome, but do I need an input device that isn't the keyboard? If there was a software that could allow me to assign keys to movements. WASD for horizontal movement and the arrow keys for height and orientation control.

  2. Hello , excuse me you have the ARDrone_SDK_2_0 folder yet?
    because I have visited the web site http://developer.parrot.com/ and I know that I download folder in Part SDK2, but the new folder is ARDrone_SDK_2_0_1 and in this folder do not contain the example for Linux " ardrone_navigation " and I need this file.
    if you have this file yet and you can send to me I will be very grateful to you.

    by the way apologize if I wrote bad the text the reason is that I am from mexico city and my language is Spanish, thankyou for read me.

  3. Nice work.
    I am trying to do the same but I have a problem when I start the ardrone_navigation.
    I am using UBUNTU 12.04
    Can you send the steps that you followed to make it work?
