connection to copter errors

Post by bstott » Mon May 06, 2013 12:07 am

I have recently updated the firmware via radio link and the bootloader. Cool feature. The CF Client connects to the copter and the copter attitude is displayed.
I am using Win 8.

Edit: In the below Error messages there is a spelling error --- "whas" should be "was".

Errors - What do they mean? When I power up the copter and connect to the CF Client I receive the following errors in the monitor:

Hi bstott,

I think it is a problem with the configuration files when updating the cfclient. What version of the cfclient are you using an on what operating system? I think it can be bacause of old configuration files that are left when updating the cfclient.

These warnings has to do with the mechanism for making sure that the clients gets the requested answers back from the Crazyflie. It's working even though there's warnings but we have a bug-report for this.

These logging configurations has been removed from the new distribution that uses the installer. They are old and contain variable names that are no longer used in the firmware so that's why the warning shows up. If you would like to get rid of them just go into your C:\Users\your_user\AppData\Roaming\cfclient and delete the logging directory.
