We build our own Crazyflie from scratch

Post by Tuxx » Sun Apr 28, 2013 10:39 am

We build our own Crazyflie!
The Maiden flight was last Friday, because we have to wait 4 weeks for the Motors from HobbyKing :cry:
Look at http://die-proleten.de/ for more information if you are interested (Sorry, but the side is only in german language).

The Maiden flight was a bit shaky, because i've never before controlled a QC with an PS3-Controller :D
After some training the Crazyflie goes very well and is much more stable.

For the next step we want to use an Raspberry PI to connect the PS3-Controller and the Radio-Dongle.
Is there already a command line version of the cfclient available ?

Thanks to Bitcraze for the great project! We learned a lot during the reproduction, and we had a lot of fun so far.

Wow! I'm really impressed :o Looks great! :P

Did not expect that someone builds their one so quickly.
Please continue to share your experiences.
How long have you been working on it?

Well Done!

We started end of February. For our Prototype we made an 2-layer board, this takes the most time.
Since end of march we had to wait for the motors from Hobby-King.

Great work guys!
And you managed to do all of this from our documentation, and we thought our documentation was incomplete :D
If you have some feedback such as suggestions for improvement or just want to share you building experience please do so!
