Flight Data

Read the flight data sent by the Parrot drone

Create a Parrot object using parrot before you use functions. You can read the in-flight navigation data such as height, orientation, and speed of the drone.


For a Parrot® Mambo drone, the functions used to read the navigation data return a zero in the landed state. However, for a Parrot Bebop2 drone, the functions return data even in the landed state.
