Units for pitch, degree and yaw.

Post by ellenkorsberg » Wed Jul 04, 2018 11:01 am

I am trying to control a Crazyflie quadcopter by streaming movements from a bluetooth-glove and letting the pitch, roll and yaw from the glove be passed to the Crazyflie directly. However, I have been unable to find some documentation that says whichs units that the Crazyflie expects for pitch, roll and yaw. My guess would be that it is either degrees or radians, but is the range from -180 deg (-pi rad) to 180 (pi rad) or 0 deg (0 rad) to 360 deg (2pi rad)?

I guess this depends on the client software you use (Python SDK, ROS, or others). The CRTP protocol uses deg around 0, i.e. negative values are fine.
