Re: Crazyflie Python Demos

Hello, I'm the original author of the code example. The main point of it was to be a very simplistic starting point for anyone looking to get started with Python programming for the Crazyflie, so it's by no means fully-featured or full of error checking. The update thread being recursive was to make...

Re: Crazyflie Python Library

How did you actually import the python libraries into your own code? I'm kinda new to python so I don't know the best practice here. I wanted to make a file named "stand_alone_thrust_test.py" in the root directory of the existing client repo but I can't figure out what import statements to use... D...

Re: Bitcraze virtual machine V0.2

Might be worth giving Mega a try. It's super quick.

Edit: I've uploaded it to Mega, you can download it here

Re: Defective Motors...

Depressed bearing is something that can happen when the crazyflie crashes upside down. You can identify it by looking at the little cylindrical part sticking up from the top of the motor. If it lookes depressed compared to the other motors, that is the issue. Most often this can fixed by pulling it...

Re: Who has it already? :)

For acrobatics I'm pretty curtain we need to update the firmware as it currently doesn't work with roll/pitch inputs all the 360 degrees (going from quaternion to degrees). It might be a simple fix but we just haven't had the time to look at it. https://bitbucket.org/bitcraze/crazyflie-firmware/src...

Re: Crazyflie Python Library

I've posted a little code example onto the Wiki so people new to developing for the Crazyflie can get going a bit quicker. You can see it here.

Re: Who has it already? :)

That's something I'm actually going to be trying to do with the Python library, just need to work out if there's a limit on the amount of roll allowed.

Re: Getting flying with a Macbook Air

Yeah, unfortunately that is the case - especially if you're using a Mac. On Windows it's actually incredibly straight-forward, you simply install the program and away you go. I managed to get everything working on the Mac with the exception of my Xbox 360 controller, due to lack of drivers. In the e...

Re: Crazyflie Python Library

I calculated the cut-out to be after 2 seconds (0.5Hz), is this not the case? This number is from both reading the firmware commander and from physical testing.

Re: Who has it already? :)

I had my first outdoor flight today! Even with light wind it's incredibly stable, I was quite surprised - nice work! Need to spend some more time playing with it so I can get the confidence to do more daring things, already hit a few trees and a chimney. :D
