Crazyradio to Xbee communication compatibility

Post by Fazal Khan » Tue Sep 19, 2017 2:59 pm

Hi,
I want to know if Crazyradio can communicate with other receiver type like Xbee from Arduino. Actually I want to broadcast message to a swarm of quadcopters including CFs and other quadcopters with Xbee as receiver.

Hi,
Crazyradio is based on the nRF24LU1+ radio chip, it is compatible with the nRF24 and nRF51/52 radio chip, it is using a Nordic radio protocol they call Enhanced Shockburst. As far as I know it is not compatible with xbee that implements the 802.15.4 protocol. So far you will either need to connect an Xbee radio to your computer or add an nRF radio to your other drones.
