[SOLVED] 750mAh won't fly - Crazyflie - Flow Deck

Post by Lombazombie » Sat Aug 10, 2019 6:11 pm

Hello,

So we wanted to increase the flight time of the crazyflie and after reading some of the other posts and blog posts we found that the 750 mAh battery (this one) worked and got around 16 min of hover time.

Now, we got the battery but the crazyflie won't lift off with the flow deck. I was curious if there is a way to increase max thrust with the flow deck or if we are missing something.

Thank you.

Hi!

You are talking about this forum thread right ? viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1383&p=7454&hilit=750#p7454

There are definitely some adjustments to the battery itself and some warnings involved... I didn't do the test myself, but I will ask Tobias for specifics about this.

The 750mAh battery might be on the edge and from what I remembered it barely took off. What you could do is to upgrade to bigger motors and propellers, 7x20 motors. Finding motors with the right connector (molex picoblade) can be a challenge though.

I'm not entirely sure what happened. We also have a crazyflie 2.1 and it was able to take off with the 750mA battery (while the other crazyflie 2.0 was not able to).

We are going to take a look at upgrading the motors to something bigger, however we are using the battery because we are trying to power some custom decks, so we would need to see what the trade off is.

Thank you.
