Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Erle Robotics has created the first Ubuntu Snappy Core powered drone, having 20 minute flight time and being able to carry up to 2 kg weight.
The Erle-Copter Ubuntu drone costs €574 (about $640), has ROS support for using different flight modes and is ideal for taking awesome photos. The drone has an APM Copter, support for using either 2.4 or 5 GHz frequencies for WiFi, 536 MB of free space and support for installing additional software via the Ubuntu Snappy App Store.
