Quite consistently, it's always going to be 1 of the crazyflie, kind of randomly (based on what i recall) just starts to fly quite badly, and then wobble, then drops (i'd describe it as more like a dying bird than dropping like a rock)
Before this post, and finding out that the Swarm Bundle had multiple crazyradios
I had no idea i had to use multiple radios for more than 3/4 crazyflies
Have just bumped in to this topic and understood the problem: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3439
Pycrazyswarm is likely their Python Wrapper/client for the commands: https://crazyswarm.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api.html
If I understood what you meant to get it working, i have to:
1. Flash Crazyflie using CF Client using release from: https://github.com/bitcraze/crazyflie-f ... ag/2019.02
2. flash Crazyradio using 'prebuilt/cradio.bin' from: https://github.com/USC-ACTLab/crazyswar ... r/prebuilt
(the binary is from 1 year ago)
3. Use Crazyswarm... but which, specifically? (note: i'm really new to ROS, I don't actually know what's the main purpose for ROS)
I had issues with Crazyswarm almost half a year ago, as I was using Loco node and it's newly implemented in Crazyswarm
My last attempt was that it doesn't fly around, just takes off and stays there indefinitely until i kill the ROS program.
Posted here: https://github.com/USC-ACTLab/crazyswarm/issues/108
At that point of time I could not get any Crazyswarm related thing to work, had tried reflashing firmwares again and again then gave up...
Now it seems I'm back to the same spot, but at least I'm more clear of the issue.
So once we clarify on the firmwares to use to-date, then i won't be doubting firmware issues again and may give Crazyswarm a try again
I actually have 2 Crazyradios with me, is there a sample where I can properly use official Python API to control say 6-8 drones using 2 radios??
Because I already have existing code that works very well, only that the number of drones supported is very limited (the 3-4 limit)
