4 Crazyflies, 1 radio and 4 paths using Flow deck

Post by PO1 » Thu Jun 21, 2018 11:56 am

In the Multiramp.py example, you can connect to 2 crazyflies via 1 radio and ramp up both Crazyflies. Is it possible to do more than this, i.e. take off and follow a route using this method if you have flowdeck for each Crazyflie and can program a route for each?

Its probably not as intended, but would it be possible?

It is intended and possible. We have been playing with that a wile ago, you can see a video and the code in this blog post: https://www.bitcraze.io/2017/08/playing ... flow-deck/

The limitation though is that with the flow you only get relative positioning and not absolute position, so the startup position is very important and if there will be drift in position during the flight, though if the surface you are flying above is good for tracking things works quite well.
