Topic: Arduino beginner who needs some guidance from someone more experienced (Project) (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

I have recently been introduced to Arudino and its possibilities so I have selected to learn how to use it specifically for one of my computer science projects where I am planning to learn how to code an auto pilot drone but I need some help just learning how to use the device and with its recommended hardware.

I don't want anyone to do my work for me, I just want someone experienced to talk me through using the Arduino and how to do it. This may be an ambitious first project for my first time but i'm willing to learn.

I have played around with the beginner kit a few times and seen codes for the drones but I want to know what they mean and how I could do my own.

Many thanks!
