Hey there guys!
Went through the manual, but couldn't find the following:
Trying to understand how do the AR drone variables $X and $Y work exactly....?

You have first to connect to the drone, before the variables show up.
There are: $DronePsi (Z axis angle), $DroneTheta (forward backward angle), $DroneAlt (altitude in mm) and $DronePhi (Roll angle), which as you see, i think i could figure out more or less how they function, but $X and $Y seem to avoid me....
Just a few thoughts of what it could be (however wait for someone else to chime in if they know). Doesn't the AR Drone have sensors for velocity? X being the velocity on the X axis and Y being velocity on the Y axis? Add the variable watcher and see what happens when you fly it around?
How come i didn't think of velocity but only of positioning?
Shall check it out very soon!
Thanks a lot!
I was not able to affirm that the $X and $Y are velocity variables, although i was looking at them while the drone was moving. The numbers just jump with no pattern that i was able to link with velocity indication.
Does anyone know, what and how these variable represent?
$DroneX and $DroneY and $DroneZ !
It appears only when the drone is connected, i have a short memory, so some 5 min elapse after i end the flying session and write a question....LOL
What do the $DroneX and $DroneY and $DroneZ stand for?
