spinning the crazyflie on the Z axis

Post by cafeciaojoe » Sat Mar 16, 2019 1:27 pm

Hi everyone!

I am using the qualisys tab of the cfClient and want to know if there is a away to make the drone spin on the z axis but also move around?

is it possible to have it move around like in the link above using the qualisys motion capture system?

It is possible for the Crazyflie to spin around Z, for that you need to send a setpoint with a yaw rate. The way to do it depends a lot of your use-case, if you are using the qualisys tab, that can be done by modifying the source code of the function you are using in the tab.

One note though: the PID controller might not behave very well when yawing fast continuously, so this is something that will need to be tested.
