Drone Claw

Drone Claw

Read the full guide on: https://learn.adafruit.com/drone-claw

In this project we are building a Drone claw powered by a Circuit Playground Express!

This 3d printed claw requires no modification to the DJI Mavic Pro drone and even works without disabling the vision sensors underneath the drone.

Great for educational projects like the old egg drop test, or delivering small items!

    What brand is the pliers shown at 1:37? They look very useful in certain situations.

    Very clever & well done!

    Am I wrong to think drones would make this energy inefficient for waste collection?

    Love the trash capture feature. Now lets get these drones to clean the plastic floating in the ocean!

    We are creating a project for our school, we need to make a drone with the grabber, so is there any way to connect the circuit playground express to my 6 channel receiver.
