Parrot Flypad for neuroscience research


#1

Dear friends,

I’m conducting a neuroscience research and I want to use the joystick of the Flypad, because it allows to use both hands in the same manner. I’m gonna use it to train patients with movement problems.

I’m wondering if the Flypad use the DirectX protocol or another?

I need to be sure that will work with the Presentation software (https://www.neurobs.com/) in an standard pc.

I really appreciate all your help.
Cheers
Pat

I know this is in old, but I’ve successfully reverse engineered the flypad.

It uses BLE to communicate with a single notify characteristic providing button and axes data.

I was excited to have my implementation completed and on a whim let it connect directly to a minidrone where I discovered it has a rumble capability.

I have yet to track down the characteristic or write value necessary to trigger this function. Has anyone else been successful?
