How can I connect an Android app made with MIT App Inventor to a drone via WiFi?

Hi everyone! I want to build an app to control the drone that can connect to WiFi :signal_strength:, but I'm unsure about the hardware requirements for establishing this connection. Additionally, I need guidance on how to design app controls :iphone: and integrate Google Maps :world_map: into it. Any tips or advice on these topics would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

Check the documentation of your drone to find out, if there is a RESTful API available
If yes, you can use the web component to connect

but my app show an error .
Error 4003: routing service failed with status 404 not found
