Programming a drone is easy!

Install Node.js and get the ar-drone module. All you need to do then is to execute the following code with node. That will make your drone take off, move around, do a flip and carefully land again. Seriously, that’s all!

``` var arDrone = require(‘ar-drone’); var client = arDrone.createClient();

client.takeoff();

client .after(5000, function() { this.clockwise(0.5); }) .after(3000, function() { this.animate(‘flipLeft’, 15); }) .after(1000, function() { this.stop(); this.land(); }); ```
