Re: New crazyflie not turning on

Can you try to connect to it using the bootloader, as described here: http://wiki.bitcraze.se/projects:crazyf ... bootloader ?

Re: Beginner question

There are some additional dependencies (pyusb, pygame etc.), but if you are able to run the cfclient, you have most likely everything you need. For the beginning, you should try to run the samples directly without eclipse. Open a command prompt, navigate to the folder with the samples, and type "pyt...

Re: New crazyflie not turning on

Your LED status seems to be normal for the USB mode (see http://wiki.bitcraze.se/projects:crazyflie:userguide:index for a list). There might be something wrong with your 4th motor, but that should not prevent you from testing the sensors etc. With "powering on" you mean that you gently press the lit...

Re: New crazyflie not turning on

Do the LEDs blink if you plug it in or light up steadily? Do the motors spin at all after you plug the usb in? Where did you buy the crazyflie?

Re: PS3 OpenSuse Mapping

This is really strange. You can try to see if it works with a custom pygame joystick script. For example the one here: http://yameb.blogspot.com/2013/01/gamep ... ython.html. Just a step to figure out if it is an issue with the bitcraze client or not.

Re: PS3 OpenSuse Mapping

You can try to switch to the pygame backend. For that, open crazyflie-clients-python/lib/cfclient/utils/joystick/__init__.py and remove/comment out lines 33 to 39.

Re: Q: What size soldering iron tip necessary?

What are you trying to solder? Just the motors? In general I would recommend 0.8 to 1.0mm.

Re: Amontec jtagkey alternatives

Great. Yes, you should flash the cradio.bin. There are instructions in the wiki: http://wiki.bitcraze.se/projects:crazyradio:programming.

Re: Amontec jtagkey alternatives

You would need to clone my repository and build the crazyradio firmware. After that you flash the resulting hex file to the crazyradio. This firmware has the option to change to PRX mode at runtime. By default, it should show the very same behavior as the original firmware (i.e. you can still use th...

Re: Amontec jtagkey alternatives

I added support for the PRX mode a while ago: https://github.com/whoenig/crazyradio-firmware.
However, keep in mind that if you do make a mistake in the crazyradio firmware, you might need to get a JTAG programmer to reflash. (Entering the bootloader is explicitly part of the crazyradio firmware).
