Hi, Everyone,

I want to make a performance of drone ballet using multiple bebop2 in an indoor.
I know that this kind of works are performed succesfully using multiple AR Drone 2.0.
These day, I connect bebop2 and control using windows based control software(PC).

However, I don’t know how to connect mutliple bebop2 to my PC.
Is it only possible 1(PC, Phone, etc) : 1(bebop2) Network?
and is there any idea can establish 1(PC, Phone, etc) : N(bebop2) Network?

Please, Help,

You connect to Bebop via wifi, so this isn’t really a bebop question since you are limited to one wifi connection per NIC.

How would you connect your pc to two wireless networks at once?

Hi,
I guess you can if you have multiple Wifi dongle for example.

Hi, Djavan
Thank you for your quick reply.

I would like to proceed according to the way you have given me.
However, one problem is expected.

Bebop2s are set in common IP(192.168.42.1)
Inorder to control multiple bebop2s with multiple wifi dongle,
I think I need to change common IP to a unique IP(192.168.42.11,192.168.42.12,192.168.42.13,etc).

How to change Bebop’s IP through Telnet connection
I hope you let me know.

While I trying this work, I am facing various problems,
I would like to solve it one by one through this place.

Please ask for help.

You can use ROS for that purpose.
