Flying a DJI Tello Drone with React and Node.js

Flying a DJI Tello Drone with React and Node.js

Hey Folks! Kind of a fun one here today. I wrote some JavaScript to fly a DJI Drone.

IBM is giving away 2,000 DJI Tello drones as part of a challenge and I made this video to help them promote it. This is the fun kind of stuff that originally got me excited about programming so I'd encourage you to try this out!

All the code is available here: along with a list of software and hardware used.
