Max thrust value?

Post by derf » Wed Jul 17, 2013 12:00 am

Hi,

To quote myself from http://forum.bitcraze.se/viewtopic.php? ... t=30#p2820:
Looking through the wiki again, I found the following line, which probably explains the reason:
"Thrust is an integer value ranging from 10001 (next to no power) to 60000 (full power)."
-> http://wiki.bitcraze.se/projects:crazyf ... l_commands
However in FlightTab.py in the Crazyflie PC client I found:

Code: Select all

MAX_THRUST = 65365.0
Which is the correct maximum thrust value? The one in the wiki or the one in the source code?

Regards,

Fred

Hi,

There's a cap at 60 000 for the set-point, so that should be changed in the client. This value allows the regulation some room around the set-point to increase the thrust for some motors while decreasing it for others. The actual limit for the thrust for each motor is 65 535.
