For this Cylon demo, we're going to connect to a Crazyflie, and then make it take off and land. Before we get started, make sure you've got the cylon-crazyflie adaptor installed.

To start us off, let's import Cylon:

var Cylon = require('cylon');

Now that we've got that set up, we can start defining our robot:


We'll be using one connection and one device for this robot, both using the crazyflie adaptor. We'll be connecting to the Crazyflie using the CrazyRadio.

  connections: {
    crazyflie: { adaptor: 'crazyflie', port: "radio://1/10/250KPS" }

  devices: {
    drone: { driver: 'crazyflie' }

With the parts in place, we can start defining our robot's work.

  work: function(my) {

When our drone is ready, we'll make it takeoff. After ten seconds, we'll tell it to land, and five seconds after that to stop.

    my.drone.on('start', function() {
      after((15).seconds(), my.drone.stop);

With all that done, we can start up the robot and get the Crazyflie flying:
