Example Code
Python
#Python code
import CoDrone

def main():
    drone = CoDrone.CoDrone()
    drone.pair()
    drone.takeoff()

    # Drone goes up for 1 second with 50 power
    drone.set_throttle(50)
    drone.move(1)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()
Arduino
//Arduino code
#include<CoDrone.h>     //header

void setup(){
    //open serial and connect
    CoDrone.begin(115200);
    CoDrone.pair(Nearest);

    CoDrone.takeoff();
    CoDrone.setThrottle(60);    // set throttle power for 60%
    CoDrone.move(5);            // move drone for 5 seconds
}

void loop(){
