Hi Tobias and Whoenig

This is great information, thanks! We will let you know in case we extend the existing functionality or implement a new one, which we will most probably do (but do not have an ETA for it yet).

Thanks,

Whoenig,

Quick question: has the syson/sysoff functionality being merged into the latest CF firmware?

Thanks,

It is merged in the official NRF firmware: https://github.com/bitcraze/crazyflie2- ... #L463-L469. There is also a neat function that allows you to check the battery voltage without turning the STM32 on.

I should have mentioned the already existing functionality, sorry whoenig ;).

I was thinking of a very low power mode as the current functionality leaves the nRF51 running. I think it will be possible to get power consumption very low by putting the nRF51 in deep sleep when not listening on the radio.

Hi Tobias and Whoenig,

This is something we want to implement in order to maximize battery duration. Our team is brand new and we do not have all needed team members (yet) to do it but we will let you know as soon as we can work on it.

Thanks again to both.

Fede R.
