I would be interested in hearing of any interest in the project available here:
The development of this was partially supported by a Tello Drone donation by DroneBlocks to Villanova University during the Summer of 2022.
The ESP32 controller hardware piece is relatively inexpensive to put together using a Breadboard and some off-the-shelf parts.
I also have a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) version of the hardware that I am using in some of my classes.
The software is built using the Arduino IDE and some commonly available libraries.
Most recently, support for using gamepads (like for PS3, PS4, and Switch systems) along with the ESP32 controller has been added.
Even the tiny pad shown below works:
Check out some of the videos linked to in the GitHub ReadMe.
Interested in any comments or questions.
