Easy to have the flight path on board the drone?

I'm wondering how much coding experience I would need to program (into the firmware?) for now just a simple lift off-hover-land on board the crazyflie.

Maybe the crazyradio signals a go command to the drone and then it begins from an on board program as opposed to relaying all commands from the python lib?

The high-level commander supports uploading trajectories. So you could generate a trajectory on the PC, upload it to the CF while it is on the ground, and then simply start execution. Unfortunately, the python lib doesn't support the HL commander yet, but crazyflie_ros does (see https://github.com/whoenig/crazyflie_ro ... h_level.py for an example with ROS).
