Creating classes that represent a drone

We will create the following classes that we will use to represent the different components of a drone:

Class name



This class stores status data for the hexacopter


This class represents a hexacopter


This class represents an LED connected to the drone


This class represents the altimeter that measures the current altitude for the drone


This class represents the drone with its different sensors and actuators


In a real-life example, these classes would interact with a library that interacts with sensors and actuators. In order to keep our example simple, we will make calls to time.sleep
