Nodecopter Leap Motion

Control your nodecopter with a Leap Motion controller.


npm install nodecopter-leap


The system is calibrated When you put your hand over the device. When you remove your hand, the drone hovers. Each time you put your hand over the device, the position is recalibrated which takes about 1 second.

  • circle finger clockwise: takeoff
  • circle finger counter-clockwise: land
  • forward, backward, left right work by tilting the hand
  • clockwise & counter-clockwise work by moving your hand to the right/left
  • do a flip by keeping one hand over the leap and punching forward with the second hand
