While this is a well run project which demonstrates some useful Qt code, we’ve selected it primarily because the AR.Drone is one of the coolest toys we’ve ever seen. We love that this project gives you the ability to guide it from your Symbian or Harmattan device while viewing the live video feed (learn how to fly it on the project wiki, along with an overview of the app architecture). We want one, and we’re pretty sure the project’s other 26 followers agree!
As a project, we like that the project owner has used their announcements discussion board to keep followers updated on new releases, and that these releases are available on the Summary page and from Nokia Store. Osterbye has also been really responsive to all user queries on the discussion boards, which is one of the keys to a successful project.
We’d like to see more tickets, and in particular a roadmap for the development of an update to support the new AR.Drone v2. The project owner hasn’t been able to commit to the evolution of this project for personal and work-related reasons – please show your thanks and support for the work done so far by following this project from its summary page, or even contributing to it.
