My friends and I are CS students, and a theme park owner wants to pay us to build him 100-200 light show drones and program custom animations. We’re relative novices when it comes to drones, and we were hoping we could get your advice on what hardware and software we should be looking to get.
In particular, what flight controllers should we buy that are:
affordable in such large quantities
allow us to program swarm animations with a library like DroneKit-Python
are compatible with onboard GPS’s, and (if necessary?) a RTK base station.
We really have no experience with the industry, so if you have any feedback on what frame, GPS, RTK station, receiver, and programming library we should use, it would be hugely helpful!!!
I realize that we don’t know what we don’t know about this industry, so if there is any information that you have about anything involving custom drone light shows, please let me know!!!
Thanks a million for reading this request, and my deepest gratitude if you have some information that can help us!!!
