Swarm Python not working as expected

I'm trying to get two CF 2.1 drones to fly forwards and backwards in the air. They are using flow decks For some reason, it seems like each action (liftOff, hover, setDown, etc) happens twice on each device. This is not the behavior I expect. One consequence of this is that when it goes to setDown, ...

Re: How to add thrust to swarmSequence.py and script flight in firmware

1. I'm using a flow deck

2. I tried flying the drone with the phone app, So I wasn't using cfclient. I'm waiting to borrow a controller so I can use cfclient.

I'll update this ticket when I have a controller and I can follow your recommendations. Thank you.

How to add thrust to swarmSequence.py and script flight in firmware

I'm trying to get the crazyflie to support 12.4g of weight. I'm using this script as an example on how to get it to fly and hover. If I don't change anything here, the drone does not have enough thrust to lift off. What can I change to change thrust? I tried changing `cf.commander.send_velocity_worl...

Cant detect drones with cfclient

I can't seem to connect to any of my drones with cfclient. I tried running a scan with all 5 of them on and none of them can be picked up. I can connect to them with my phone. Cold boot (recovery) doesnt pick up anything either. Is there some way to verify my PA radio is working? The LEDs seem to be...

Re: Practical difference between Flow deck and light house positioning system

Thanks for sharing! That does clarify the precision I can expect.

Practical difference between Flow deck and light house positioning system

I'm trying to figure what positioning system to use. I can't use the loco positioning system due to 802.15.4 interference with some of the equipment I'm going to use. I want to be able to write a script that tells multiple (up to 10) crazyflie drones to fly to some position at a controlled speed. Th...

Base Stations Range

I read that the lighthouse v2 base station has a range of 6m. If I put one base station 12 meters away from another base station, could a crazyflie drone reliably position itself in the 12 meter area between the two base stations? I would imagine the reliability would be the same as just have one ba...
