So our Mambos arrived last week! I had the chance to play with the Pi - so good. One dependency that wasn’t in the docs is bluepy and bluepy-helper
$ sudo apt-get install python-pip libglib2.0-dev
$ sudo pip install bluepy
But that wasn’t hard. I really wanted a way for kids to be able to program from their laptops (Windows)… it turns out using VirtualBox was a relatively simple way to achieve this. The only caveat is that they need access to device manager to disable bluetooth and re-enable it for it to be captured in the vm.
This allows students to use it straight from their Windows laptop without having to SSH to the Pi! Thank you so much CaptainSaavik. Can’t wait to see the voodoo you do to get FPV working!
