Arduino Communication with Crazyradio

Post by mightymike » Thu Oct 31, 2013 2:41 am

Hi!

I am trying to make my own crazyflie controller using two analog joyticks, an arduino, and the crazyradio. Currently I am trying to figure out how to get the arduino to communicate with the crazyradio via usb. Can anyone point me in the right direction for protocol documentation, illustrative examples, or maybe even libraries. I haven't been able to find much on the wiki that I can understand, as I am pretty new to hardware in general. If you're wondering why I'm using the arduino, it's because eventually I'd like to be able to act upon telemetry data from the radio with the arduino. For now, however, it'll just pass the controller input through.

Thanks, Mike

Doing USB host functionality is very difficult and I don't think there are any arduinos that can do that. I would use a nRF24L01+ breakout instead and I've seen libraries for that which are already available for arduino. Have a look here as well.
