DRONE In The Lake

I purchased some nice serial to Bluetooth adapters from Roving Networks so we can work with the DRONE platform wirelessly.  The nice thing about them is they have their own rechargeable battery built in which makes them really easy to use and setting up two to form a wireless RS-232 cable was as simple as setting a few dip switches.

I put the DRONE out in a small lake we have on campus and drove it around a bit with a joystick to test out how well the platform works.  Here’s some video of the test.
