Radio Not Working During Bootloader

Post by dionigi »

Hi all,

So my radio is able to find the quadcopter through the client and when running code, but is unable to find it when I hit 'initiate cold boot' through Connect->Bootload.

Of note is that I changed the address of my quadcopter from 0xE7E7E7E7E7 to 0xE7E7E7E7E8 to avoid interference from others in the same building, but I made sure to modify the correct lines in cflib, those being:

Code: Select all

self.set_address((0xE7,)*4 + (0xE8,)) //drivers/
    DEFAULT_ADDR_A = [0xe7, 0xe7, 0xe7, 0xe7, 0xe8] //crtp/
    DEFAULT_ADDR = 0xE7E7E7E7E8 //crtp/
I suspect the issue is due to me using a native linux build and forgetting something, as one of my mates working on the project is able to bootload through his VM on Mac. Any ideas for what it could be, or how I could troubleshoot it?

There should be no problem specifically with Linux (most of the Crazyflie client development is done in Linux ...).

- Are you rebooting your Crazyflie in bootloader mode by pressing the power button until the M2 LED blinks?
- When in cold-boot mode, the Crazyradio should blink in red at regular interval (it is searching for a Crazyflie in bootloader mode), does that happen for you?
