Follow me mode
« on: February 09, 2018, 06:41:03 PM »
Hi All

I have just started printing the parts for my drone.

I am currently getting a list of parts together ready to purchase but I am wondering if anyone has managed to do follow me mode

I have had a google search and a search on here but not managed to find anything.

my main reason for the build and follow me is I do off roading in a buggy with my mates and we are trying to get some footage of us driving.
 I can add a gps module to my buggy if needed.

I know I need the sonar modules for the altitude height as I will be going up hills.

I am also planning on adding a gimbal and camera for video.

Thank you all in advance

Regards

Ted

Use the Pixhawk or one of its smaller variances (I used PixFalcon). Full autonomous functions including Follow-me.

This is just what was holding me back - does it work with a camera installed I've seen from previous posts the GPS and cameras do not seem to play nicely together?

Would this be worthwhile?
