Re: How important are these parts & Geeetech crazyflie?

Thankyou Dershu, I will tell him to look into getting replacement parts before the next flight.Also, are you confirming that Geeetech is not genuine? I can not say that Geeetech is not a genuine accurate copy of the Crazyflie, but I recall one of the original developers on here recently commenting ...

Re: How important are these parts & Geeetech crazyflie?

I just helped a friend fix his crazyflie, the motor soldering was very bad (not that its easy at all) and during the process he accidentally de soldered the little black smb things between each motors through holes.. see pic. Also I noticed his crazyflie is made by Geeetech, is this a genuine crazy...

Re: Motor Control

Hello, I recently acquired a crazyflie 10DOF and will receive all the parts etc in about a month. Today I was skimming through some dev topics and found that many of you were saying that the most low level access to motor control goes through pitch roll yaw. Is this correct? Am I not able to indivi...

Re: Can't Lift Off

Hi, I'm pretty sure I put on both right but here is a picture of the props and the motor connections http://imgur.com/a/3kG11#jpLMlmW I've checked the assembly instructions but I will do so again. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks. IMHO, your propellers appear to mounted to rotate backwards, when c...

Re: Powering through JTAG

Anybody know if it's safe to power the Crazyflie through the JTAG? The normal function of the power pin on an ARM JTAG pinout is to sense the power supply of the device under test so that the the JTAG interface buffers run at the DUT power voltage. It could possibly do what you want on some target ...

You would need extra hardware to enable only one sensor on the bus at one time, to prevent bus contention.

Re: Xbox 360 does not show target values

Hi, I have downloaded all the required software but I can't seem to control my crzayflie using Xbox 360. I did saved the configure device mapping with Xbox 360 but, when I move the joysticks, the target values in the flight data does not show any response. This may sound terribly obvious, but somet...

Re: Max thrust - won't lift off

It's a little surprising because the propellers seem to be spinning fast, so it doesn't even seem like low power. I get a loud buzz, but no movement off the ground. Am I missing something :?: Could you have accidently got the propeller rotation directions reversed???? With the correct propeller ins...
