I mentioned this in the release note thread where support for AR Drone 2.0 was announced, but I think @DJ might have missed it.
Can you add the ability to specify the IP address of the AR Drone? With the latest firmware, it is now possible to have the AR Drone join an Infrastructure network rather than creating its own Ad-Hoc network, so if we can specify the address, it would be possible to control an AR Drone 2.0 and one or more EZ-B's from the same machine, or depending on use of movement panels, from the same instance of EZ-Builder.
My dream use case is to have a rolling platform that can launch the drone and retrieve the drone (retrieving would be tougher because accurate landings are not easy, although I could build an arm to pick up the drone and return it to the landing pad).
(then I just need to figure out how to remotely turn on the drone, which today is done by plugging in the battery. Probably need to wire in a switch and a way to activate it from the launch platform).
The other request may be doable with just some changes in configuration, I just haven't had a lot of time to play with it yet. When object or color tracking, the Drone appears to try to get very close to the object. I would like to keep a set distance away. Here the use case is to put a glyph or specific color on my back, and have the drone follow me from about 10 feet away while filming me mountain biking (I would put my tablet in my pack controlling it). The idea would be to reproduce This without spending $1500....
