I have a drone that is controlled by an app in the phone (iOS and Android). http://www.cheersonhobby.com/productShow.asp?id=3665 You can find them on Google Play and Apple Store under the name: CX-10WiFi.
Right now I want to try to write my own code and control my drone via a Xamarin app instead.
The drone itself has a wifi-connection that you need to connect your phone to in order to make the connection with the phone-drone to work.
I started very briefly with a "ConsumerIrManager"-code in Xamarin.Android but I think that is the wrong approach. (https://github.com/xamarin/monodroid-samples/blob/master/ApiDemo/Hardware/ConsumerIr.cs)
It would be cool to get a discussion going about how you can create dronecontrols in xamarin.
What I ultimately want to achieve is to for example write in code so that the drone flies 3m up and then down.
