If you own a drone and have an app for it, you can make them self-operated using a phone. This article discusses how to do that. It is not difficult if you can read the instructions or use a tutorial provided with your drone to learn about drones operated by phone.
You will need an additional battery for your drone in the event of an accident and having a battery for your real controller will also give you the ability to charge it from your phone. There are plenty of places that you can get a battery charger, such as at Amazon.com. You will want to purchase a power cord to use with your phone if you do not already have one.
You will want to use the app that comes with your drone for its flight-control and aerobatic functions, but you will need to open it up to the main controllers for any other functions. This means that you will need to open it up to whatever you would like to use it for.
Know The Operations
Once you have opened it up, you will find two controls, one for the transmitter and one for the receiver. You will need to have a signal of one of these so that your phone can pick it up and send it to your drone.
There are several different signals and codes that you can use to call them into action. One of the better codes is ABC-call all by phone. Just make sure that your code is set to one of the receivers so that your phone will know to send it out.
Once your phone gets the signal, you will be able to control the main controllers on your drone from anywhere in the world. You will be able to land it by calling it by phone and then begin to control it from there.
It is important to realize that you will be connecting with your drones via phone calls. While you will be able to see your drone in the app. You will not be able to see the controller from the phone.
You will have to send your signal to be picked up by the phone. And you will need to make sure that your drone has a good signal in the local area codes that you are using. If you do not use any local codes, you may want to look for a connection to work from your main controllers instead.
Your phones will only be able to send out signals if they are near your drone. Make sure that you are within a few feet or else the signal will not go through. If you are far away, you may have to just buy a phone that will call your drone instead.
When you are inside the drone, you will be able to receive a signal from the phone. And then connect to it by phone. When you are outside, however, you will only be able to send out the signal to your phone.
Your phone will be sending out signals to your drone if it is within the range of your phone. Even if it is outside of the range, it is still possible to call your drone by phone.
All in all, if you are more interested in learning how to fly your drones, than learning how to control them remotely, you will want to learn how to do that with your remote control first. If you just want to control your drones remotely, then you can do that with a remote, and then use the phone to call them.
