I am looking to buy a camera drone and process the images in Matlab. Since this is new to me, I would like easy integration with Matlab. Matlab has a lot of support for the Parrot Mambo FPV drone, but Parrot has confirmed it is discontinuing its minidrones. If you have sucessfully used the Matlab Parrot support package with other Parrot drones, like the Bebop 2, I would like to know.

Hello Ali and KAE,
The drone hardware business is changing fast, so it is unlikely that any of today’s hardware will still be shipping a few years from now.
MathWorks is continuously evaluating drone hardwares to ensure that our user community will have options to work with drones in MATLAB/Simulink.
For example, we are currently evaluating the support for Parrot Anafi, Ryze Tello etc. in MATLAB/Simulink.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Srijith

Thank you. I know it is a moving target but it would be nice to include support for the DJI drones due to their widespread use, or perhaps a user who has succeded connecting Matlab to the DJI drone SDK could be 'interviewed' for one of the Matlab blogs.

We have just released the MATLAB Support Package for Ryze Tello Drones . You can see examples in the Support Package Documentation.

Hi KAE,
The MATLAB Support Package for Parrot Drones will start supporting the Parrot Bebop2 drone from the July update.

The Tello drone seems like a good option. We are starting to use it with Python & It'd be fantastic to have enabled in Matlab.
