Obtaining Serial Number without USB Connection

Post by christi »

Hello,

Is there a way to obtain the serial number of the Crazyflie 2.1 nano quadcopter without using a cable to connect the drone to the computer (I have read the instructions here: https://www.bitcraze.io/documentation/r ... 02/serial/)? Is it possible to find the number elsewhere or through connecting the drone remotely using the Crazyradio dongle?

Background: Currently, the Crazyflie's USB port needs to be re-soldered, but I need the serial number soon (the drone is still able to charge through a wireless charger and deck).

Thank you for your time,

Christi

If you connect the Crazyflie with the client, in the console tab, the serial number is on the third line, however the endinanness is not wight so you will have to move bytes around.

For example my Crasyflie shows:

Code: Select all

SYS: Crazyflie 2.1 is up and running!
SYS: Build 77:8b22ee23e69f (2020.09 +77) CLEAN
SYS: I am 0x2039374348485016003F0030 and I have 1024KB of flash!
And its serial number, as shown by the USB port, is: 30003F001650484843373920

The bytes needs to be reversed to pass from one to the other.
