Re: OpenPilot firmware ported to Crazyflie

They've culled a ton from the project for releases. I went back a year and saw 200 different branches. That is a scary repo.

Re: OpenPilot firmware ported to Crazyflie

But this is version controlled, are you sure the branch isn't in the history? I'm about to go diving for it in the old commits.

Re: Beginner protection ring

I don't know if anyone will agree with me, but zip ties are the best thing in the world. I made landing gear and prop protection with some. Landing gear only now though. I don't crash as much with a better PID tuning.

Re: Althold mode from self-written client

The current one uses the barometer to hold pressure level. Not very useful outdoors or in drafty areas. My sealed apartment doesn't even let it hold too well.

Re: The easiest and best Controller

The controller itself does not matter. Your preferences for stick weight and layout are more important. Above all, do not buy a used controller with play in the sticks and expect it to be an easy flight experience. I have a ton of play in both my sticks, and hovering is impossible. Tiny movements ar...

Re: Crazyflie spins uncontrollably

Sounds like you're the victim of imperfect PID tuning! My suggestion is to dig into the firmware and start with a new tuning that removes the kI gain terms. My CF was having a tough time staying stable, and so I retuned my sensorfusion6 kP and kI along with the attitude PID. My sensor fusion is much...

Re: Battery upgrade from 240 mAh to 500 mAh

That's great! Thank you very much Tobias, we will have a lot more flight time. We bought three crazyflie's 2.0 with all spare parts, trying out a lot of new possible applications. What is the extra care to be taken if we use a non-PCM battery. Please advise. Are there any other 750 mAh Lipo batteri...

Re: Any tutorial available for Crazyflie?

Thrust is up and down, pitch is forward and backward, roll is left and right. Expect to run into things.

Re: Problems with Alititude Hold Program

This thread seems to have an answer. http://forum.bitcraze.se/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=883 When working in the altitude hold mode, the altitude is defined by thrust with the setpoint being (0, 0, 0, 32767). Send that command to start, and slowly decrease the setpoint to (0, 0, 0, 0). I'm talking aim for ...

Re: Controlling over Python

I have no clue how that can be done... Git tutorial by GitHub: https://try.github.io/levels/1/challenges/1 Git is a very useful tool that anyone interested in open-source projects should look into. There is a graphical GitHub client also that can help you manage your repositories and how you work w...
