Hi Guys,

Just wanted to say nice job!! Got my Crazyflie assembled and in the air in no time under OSX 10.8 using a Logitech gamepad!
It is super stable!!

Put me down as a tester for PPM control with an RC Tx!

Best,
Serge

One things I will mention...

After about 4 minutes of flying my engines shut down due to a lost connection on the client side.... too many packets lost.

Not sure why that happened all of a sudden.

It might be from WiFi interference.
Changing the radio channel might help.
You can search the forum there's a few related posts about it.

Thanks for you kind words, it means a lot to us!

Just as atomicdog said it can be WiFi interference but it could also have been the battery ran out?

We have on our todo list to try and improve the radio connection by implementing channel hopping, but also not disconnect when we loose the down-link. The up-link is way better and that way it would still be controllable, but the telemetry would be lost.
