AR.Drone v1.0 and v2.0 WiFi-less mod by miru


This website gathers information about the WiFi-less mod for AR.Drone v1.0 and v2.0 by miru that has been presented on the RCGroups.com forum in the following thread:

AR drone control with RC transmitter, yet another Wifi-less mod

The thread became very popular and now it takes a long time to go through it. Although it is still recommended to read the whole thread to better familiarize with the mod, this website gathers the most important information in a (hopefully) easy to read way that will allow you to get started. As miru still continues work on the mod and adds new features it is recommended to subscribe to the original thread to stay up to date (note you need to register an account on RCGroups.com to do so). This website will also be updated with recent additions.

Features of the mod

  • precise control of drone

    these versions can not be tested any more due to lack of existence in my lab.

  • + no BEC needed
  • + uses drone's serial port
