Communication between two CrazyRadios

Post by Limnfo » Sat Dec 09, 2017 6:33 pm

Hi there!

as stated in the following post, in 2015 it was not possible to "connect" two crazyradios together

And communicating between two Crazyradio is not yet possible, Crazyradio is not listening to the radio, only transmitting (there is a pull request for making it listen in the repos so it is comming though)
Has somebody made this possible in the meantime? I would be highly interested if I could enable communication between a PC and a Raspberry via crazyradio.

Best regards,

There is now a PRX mode in the Crazyradio firmware git repos, it should be what you need to communicate between two Crazyradios. Though I have not tested it personally so I am not sure of the state of it.

Hi arnaud,

thanks for your reply!
Is there someone who may know it, or someone I could ask for details?

It would be really great if this would work :-)

I just tested the PRX functionality in the latest commit and it works. If you compile the firmware from source, and use the prx and ptx examples from the crazyradio-firmware repos, you can communicate between two Crazyradios on two different computers

See my message in another thread for the mandatory warnings about compiling your own firmware :-).
