Unable to stabilize the crazyflie from a joystick

Post by skyer » Mon Oct 22, 2018 2:46 am

Hi,
I balanced the propeller following the link

Ho much drift are you observing? Maybe you could take a short video of the takeoff. For reference this is one we took to show what to expect when flying manually without touching the roll/pitch control: https://www.bitcraze.io/getting-started ... infostep41.

Balancing the propeller and having the Crazyflie make as little noise as possible when flying is the way to get more stable flight.

Generally, manual flight without any positioning system requires some skills since you have to correct for drifts. When using a flow deck or a positioning system, the Crazyflie is able to sense its movement in the room and so will be able to hover in place by itself.
