I am relatively new to using drones and was wondering if someone more experienced in the topic could lend a hand. I am familiar with C++ and OpenCV, a facial recognition software that has libraries in C++. I would like to be able to use the software to control the drone (engaging it/turning off or on. Flight patterns would be a plus).
In other words I need someone to point me in the right direction to finding the right materials so that my C++ code can control the drone. If anyone can point me to the reading materials or specific drones to purchase I would be extremely grateful.
Note, I used quadcopter as a tag because I did not have enough reputation to use drone
