Can i control hobby king quadracopter by using my laptop.

My project is to make a quadracopter that follows an object. I want to know if i can control the motion of the quad wirelessly through a laptop based on the image processing results from MATLAB. If so how can i do it.Pls help me...

Have a look at Seeed Studio Bazaar, The IoT Hardware enabler. which controls the quadcopter via a laptop connected to the quad via radio, with the user supplying the movement control using a USB-connected controller.

All you would need to do is replace the USB controller with your vision processing and analysis software to send commands to the quad for directional movement.
