Re: [FEATURE ADDED] CareFree Mode

I don't mean to spoil the fun but I'm fairly certain this is the same thing as what I did in this thread: http://forum.bitcraze.se/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=847

Re: [HELP]Realizing new flight mode

Well, it seems like further along in the video they say that that mode is just turning on the motors automatically after you throw it. I suppose the visual effect they displayed could be done by using the barometer to lock the Crazyflie at a certain height.

Re: Flying using fixed rotation(Headfree mode)

Alfred, Counteracting external forces sounds really cool, maybe you could even implement that, but without the yaw lock. The user would still have control over yaw, but the yaw that your program locks to is constantly set to the target yaw of the user(or should it be the current yaw?) Basically as a...

Re: Flying using fixed rotation(Headfree mode)

Hi Alfred, Cool to see that someone else is doing the same thing! I'd like to see the difference in how you and I implemented the headfree mode or "yaw lock" as you call it. Additionally, Once the button is pressed, the crazyflie will lock its orientation about its vertical axis (fixes the horizonta...

Re: Flying using fixed rotation(Headfree mode)

This is great fun! Cool! Glad you enjoyed it! I just wonder if we need a button or something to reset the 'front' orientation. Yeah I think it probably needs a toggle button for the mode, as well as a front reset button, maybe added to the controller config. I was also thinking it could constantly ...

Re: Flying using fixed rotation

Arnaud, Just rename bin/cfclient into bin/cfclient.py and double click on it to launch the client from source. Thanks for the advice, I will try it as soon as I get a chance. Did you push this code anywhere? I would be curious to try out . Not yet. I'll do some polishing up, and then I would be more...
