Suggestion - newbie training mode for mobiles

As a recent recipient of a CrazyFlie 2 as a present, I am in a steep learning curve. Putting it together was easier than I thought, but flying it with a mobile phone is proving to be a challenge. The controller is very responsive but not intuitive, and the CF2 goes like the proverbial bat out of hel...

Re: Using a USB game controller with Android? [Solved]

Just to note that now I know that you can do it, I've started a thread in the General forum to discuss WHICH game controller to use. :D

General question - which game controller do you use?

I'm looking at Game Controllers at the moment and there seems to be a lot of divided opinion on various fora. The Bitcraze favourite seems to be a PS3 or compatible. This is where I am at the moment. My Android devices - Sony Xperia Z tablet and Samsung Galaxy S5 phone. My PC devices - Windows 7 and...

Re: Using a USB game controller with Android?

Thanks. :D Will investigate. Edit: The PC software seems to accept a wide range of controllers, including the Xbox 360. Is the PS3 (or compatible) the only option for Android? Ideally I would like to be able to use the same controller with the PC and Android phone/tablet. Now if I could only source ...

Crazyradio PA out of stock in UK?

New to all this, but my next step after testing with Android is to test with a game controller and a PC. However everywhere seems to be out of stock when I try to find the Crazyradio PA in the UK. Is this a recent thing? Is there a regular shortage whilst new stocks ship from China? If so, how long ...

Re: Flight school

Just started learning to fly my Crazyflie 2. My first stage is just trying to get it to go straight up using only throttle and not move around too much. Initially it shot backwards every time. I've now added quite a bit of trim and it is much better although once it is off the deck there seems very ...

Using a USB game controller with Android? [Solved]

I've just put my Crazyflie 2 together and it works - but zooms away much like at the end of the installation video. Probably some balancing to do. Although some forum posts seem to suggest that it should be fairly stable and balance itself. The beginners' instructions say that you can control it fro...
