Preliminary Questions

Post by dwaddsy » Thu May 09, 2013 6:07 am

I am eagerly awaiting my CF. I have a Macbook Pro and I really would like to work with the FPV. Can anyone give me tips on how to 1. use my Macbook Pro and 2. The equipment I need to purchase to successfully FPV my CF?!

Thank you everyone

Hi,

For the first question you can have a look at this thread for some tips on how to get going on Mac.

For more information on the FPV test we did you have have a look at this post or for the master thesis on adding a camera you can have a look at this post.

Also, you should look at this page which details how to get the Crazyflie Client working on OSX.

oh wow $1200 for the camera! I've been searching around and since I'm more at the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to knowledge of the camera's I was wanting to know if this is the only option right now. It would be disappointing as that is way out of my budget and I would love to FPV enable my CF =(

The 5.8Ghz FPV set is 124€, find this quite reasonable. Not sure where you are getting that 1200€ quote from.
