Dive into the world of flow based programming with Node-RED for Tello and Tello EDU drones. Node-RED is a powerful visual editor for developing custom software for IoT, the Internet of Things. Since Tello and Tello EDU can be programmed using UDP this makes Node-RED a logical choice for building advanced drone missions.

This video course walks through installing Node-RED, understanding the interface, creating custom logic, and building visual dashboards for Tello and Tello EDU. You will learn the basics of Node-RED as well as how to use JavaScript to add custom behavior to your missions. You will also gain an understanding of Tello EDU's mission pad and swarm features.

Since Node-RED runs in a web browser it can be accessed from any computer on the same network. This will come in handy when viewing visual dashboards that interface with Tello and Tello EDU. All source code can be found in the GitHub repository for this course:

With 20 lessons in this course we hope that you'll gain an in-depth understanding of Node-RED and share your creations with the DroneBlocks community. Be sure to preview some of the free lessons below and we look forward to seeing you in the course.
