Re: Firmware development in Windows

Hey Matej Are you running the cfloader module under WSL or natively on Windows? it's gotta be on Windows (from cmd.exe) because WSL cannot access libusb devices (yet...I've heard rumors and anxiously await the day this changes!). If you're running natively on Windows (I use 64bit Python3.7 from pyth...

Re: Firmware development in Windows

Also, I don't have a great solution to 'make cload'. I either use the debugger (from the WSL terminal as described) or I keep a second windows/python prompt open and use cfloader directly to upload via the radio. Maybe I'll look into a better way...but at the end of the day, until WSL supports libus...

Re: Firmware development in Windows

Hey -- apologies for missing this; private message email notifications were turned off on my account :( Anyway, I'll write up proper instructions in the next week or two, but here's the short of it for my latest workflow on Windows: Compiling: I use the Ubuntu flavor of WSL exclusively, with the sam...

Re: Replace motors with brushed

Yeah, I mean CW and CCW. The CCW motors need to have their leads swapped in the connector to spin in the correct direction on crazyflie.

Re: Crazyflie 2.0 - Power Button Fell Off - Two Blue Lights Stuck on (M3 and M2)

Hey Tobias -- hopefully this isn't a red herring, but this sounds similar to the board I sent you a while back. The power button got ripped off in a crash and then I wasn't able to communicate with the STM or boot it into recovery (by shorting BOOT0) any more..

Re: Replace motors with brushed

I have upgraded my FPV crazyflie with those exact motors. Some notes: - The motors are very slightly larger in diameter. They do fit in the plastic mounts, but they put extra strain on the plastic. Expect to break many more motor mounts. I typically break one very time I crash. - As Tobias pointed o...

Anchor count for TDoA v2/v3

Hi -- it's unclear to me from the docs on the wiki whether 8 anchors are strictly required for TDoA 2/3 to work, or whether they just work better with 8 anchors. I've only got six anchors - am I limited to TWR or should I expect TDoA 2/3 to work too?

Thanks!

Re: Betaflight support for CF2.0

No, that's correct. You should have a 9250. The 9250 is actually the 6500 plus a mag so betaflight treats it as a 6500.

I'll stare at the code a bit more.

A video of the lights (error code) would be helpful too if possible.

Re: Betaflight support for CF2.0

Hey thanks for the details. Sorry for the delay; busy week. Unfortunately, this doesn't repro for me, using your workflow (and 10.1.0). The four-blinks after boot is an error code, which indicates "FAILURE_ACCEL_INCOMPATIBLE". According to the code, this error triggers based on a revision check for ...

Re: Betaflight support for CF2.0

Which version of the betaflight firmware? (10.1.0 is the configurator, right?)

I haven't seen this error but I haven't tried moving past Betaflight 3.2 just yet. I'll grab 10.1.0 and try it out later today.
