Can I control 2 CF with 1 USB-Dongle?

Post by aybarskizilay » Tue Mar 12, 2019 9:45 am

Hello everyone,

I would like to expand the my CF fleet.
I have Indoor explorer bundle. Can I add one more CF to my system?

How many CF can I control with one USB-Dongle?

Thanks

Aybars

I guess you have 6 anchors then? There are then two possibilities to expand.
  1. Run TWR-TDMA: This is splitting the time between the CF2. This mode is not so well documented and not that tested but should work well for two CF2. It will work well with 6 anchors which might be preferred for you but requires rebuilding the CF2 FW with the right settings.
  2. Run TDoA: Then we recommend 8 anchors but it is easy to setup and you can in theory have unlimited amount of CF2s.
We recommend max 3 CF2 per Crazyradio but it is all about required bandwith and latency.
