Hi!

The setup documentation: https://www.bitcraze.io/documentation/r ... _overview/ is currently talking about basestation v1, so not v2. The V1 basestations are designed to have a maximum of 2 so there is not really anyway to go around that.

We are working on V2 support, which should be able to support more than two, however it is not completely finished yet. Please keep an eye on our website and this issue: https://github.com/bitcraze/crazyflie-f ... issues/570

Hi!

Have you set the base stations to use channel 1 and 2?
They will interfere if they are on the same channel.

I think you might need to use a paperclip. This page seems to have a picture on how you can do it: https://holocafe.de/en/blog/posts/how-t ... e-stations

Unfortunately no date but we are working on it continuously. Most of the functionality in the Crazyflie is finished except a mechanism to update the binary in the deck. Apart from that it is mainly client work that remains.
