Program a drone to fly at different speed and duration settings, in order to fly a specific distance.

Program the Parrot drone to fly a specific distance by changing its speed and flying duration. To fly twice the distance, you can double the speed setting, for example, from 50% to 100%. Another way is keeping the speed the same, but doubling the flying time.
In Physics, distance = speed x time. Velocity is a vector physical quantity; both magnitude and direction are required to define it. The scalar absolute value (magnitude) of velocity is called "speed".
Set a target landing zone and program the drone to fly and land in the that zone. Try adjusting the speed setting to 25% and 50% and see how much flying time is needed to reach the target landing zone.
Discussion: if you want to fly to the target zone in half of the time, how should the speed setting be adjusted?
