I don't see how you can control a drone with a laptop, but perhaps take a look at this guy he has lots of drone builds.AndyRC

That looks like a nice build! I saw that DJI Tello drones can be controlled and figured it would be possible to build one to do the same too

You can control with a laptop, provided you are using the correct FCB. I don't know enough about the RealACC boards to say one way or another.

There are much better forums than this one, or even the DRP forums. Check out RCUniverse, I've been on there for a loooooong time, and have gotten great advice. I've been building drones for nearly 10 years now, and they have been my go to when I can't figure it out on my own.
