Re: Radio Not Connecting

I decided to restart the VM as opposed to saving the state when I close the app and it now detects the USB. However, when i tried to launch the client as the root user it gave me a "command not found" message. Even though it connects to the drone, it is back to connecting for around 5 seconds before...

Re: Radio Not Connecting

Arnaud, Thanks for the reply. I was mistaken, it does flash green and red when plugged in. However, the crazyradio is recognized in the VM. Whenever I hit scan in the client, it does not recognize that the radio is plugged in, and displays the message that I provided in the original post. Do you thi...

Radio Not Connecting

Hi all, My crazyradio has never been fully functioning, and I am not sure whether or not that is a manufacturer or user error. Until recently, the radio would connect to the drone for about 10 seconds, and then disconnect. I don't think the radio ever connected for more than 20 seconds. By the way, ...

Re: Editing Motion Commander

Tobias,

Thanks for the response, the deck is mounted in the correct direction, and all the connections look solid as far as I can tell, although I can obviously not see everything. Could it be a problem with my cf client?

Thanks

Re: Editing Motion Commander

Arnaud,

I think I am beginning to understand the problem. While the flow deck is installed, the crazyflie is not detecting it. I noticed this by looking at the console. Do you know of any ways to solve this?

Re: Editing Motion Commander

Yes I do have the flow deck. Will the changes in the client be reflected when used just with my python scripts? Thank you for working with me.

Re: Editing Motion Commander

Arnaud, Brilliant, that installed correctly. However, when I run the test python script provided on the wiki the crazyflie still does not generate enough thrust to take off. Seeing as I can run it get it to take off with my phone, I don't believe this is a motor or hardware issue. Do you have any su...

Re: Editing Motion Commander

Arnaud,

Thank you for the reply. I ran the commands in the terminal but it responds with "-e option requires 1 argument". Is there something that I have to put after the -e in order to make it run?

Editing Motion Commander

Is it possible to edit the motion_commander.py file? While trying to run the test python script, the crazyflie fails to take off properly. I think this is due to the lack of thrust in the takeoff sequence. When I go to edit the MotionCommander class, the changes are not reflected in my flight script...
