Possible Battery Mod?

I was curios if this could replace the existing battery on the Crazyflie?

Seems like it could work but wanted to confirm with some of the architects.

Re: Broken Power Button on Crazyflie

You were correct. I managed to bridge the two legs on the IC. Did a little re soldering magic and got it to power on with out being plugged in. :mrgreen: Thanks again so much for your help tobias. Your attention to detail and provided pictures were very much appreciated. More importantly, thank you ...

Re: Broken Power Button on Crazyflie

I tried to solder it and no go. I also tried to glue it and no go. I am this bad at soldering? This seems like a trivial fix. Here is the CF in current state: 2014-06-26 09.47.41.jpg (The pic is a little miss leading, but I did solder it to 1 n-000091. Also I'm using the smallest solder tip I have a...

Re: Broken Power Button on Crazyflie

The OFF pad came off when I tried the previous described method. I don't know if it also ripped up the metal wire leading from n-000091 to the 1 n-000091. Here is a pic: 2014-06-25 07.01.02.jpg Do I need to also solder a wire in this little canal it created to make proper contact to this newly creat...

Re: Broken Power Button on Crazyflie

So I got my spare power switches and re soldered one on there. When I sodered off one of the sides, the whole metal piece came out (pretty sure I needed a smaller tip for better contact :o ). It exposed the black board so there was only one metal piece to soder to. I doubt I am getting good contact ...

Re: [VIDEO] Fully Autonomous Flight - Working Proof of Conce

Well you have impressive modifications to the Crazyflie. A kludge of a quad-copter, but still very legit. I saw some of your other youtube videos and they spark a lot of interest. Informatics is a cool area of study and to be doing it with a computer vision group is a unique opportunity. Thanks for ...

Re: [VIDEO] Fully Autonomous Flight - Working Proof of Conce

Yooooooo bro! Used python for the control stuff and for the client, but all the SLAM stuff is written in c++ using eigen for the linear algebra stuff. Speed is really important here, it only just runs at full speed in c++. Note the code is not really optimized and not parallelised at all. Nice. We p...

Re: [VIDEO] Fully Autonomous Flight - Working Proof of Conce

This is really cool. Did you use Python to develop the openCV client? Did you make those mounts to hold the camera?

Re: Broken Power Button on Crazyflie

I reviewed some of the other posts and the parts can be found here:

http://wiki.bitcraze.se/projects:crazyf ... spareparts

So now how can safely remove the broken switch and resolder a new one?
