External Mode

External mode enables Simulink® on the host computer to communicate with the deployed model on the Parrot® minidrone during runtime. This feature helps you to tune the parameters and perform real-time monitoring of the model running on the drone.

Note

Do not change any of the default settings for the External mode parameters.
