How can I program the crazyflie without using the Bitcraze VM?

Post by leonana69 » Wed Apr 27, 2016 9:48 am

My OS is Ubuntu 16.04, and I've already installed the crazyflie-cilents-python, but I can only use the client to control the quadcopter by the gamepad. I don't know how to program it. Can anyone help me? :(

What exactly do you mean by "program" it. You can, in fact, use python to control is just as the client is doing. There are examples scripts in the client source tree. If you you want to change the Crazyflie firmware, you'll need to clone that source, install the an ARM development stack and compile.

What you want to do will determine how best to accomplish it...
