Welll.. good luck with that! You could try it of course, but unfortunately those base stations are quite complex I heard, so I wouldn't bother if I were you.

fwiw, valve produces *all* the v2 base stations, even the ones sold by htc. they're even $50usd cheaper on steam!


unfortunately, it is my understanding that v2 lighthouse tracking is not supported by the lps deck. i think i might take a stab at getting v2 to work if it's not functioning by the time i receive my crazyflie :)

Hi!

You mean the lighthouse deck right, not the LPS deck? ;)

We are working on V2 support but it's definitely not easy. This quarter we will put a lot of manpower on it to hope to crack it quickly! If you also want to take a look at it, it would be good to start a new thread on this or send us an email so we can give you an update on the current process. It is good to not reinvent the wheel twice. But all help is definitely welcome.
