Crazyflie 2.0 pre-order teaser

Finally it’s getting really close and we are very excited to say that the pre-order of the Crazyflie 2.0 will start this week! We will post more details about it during the week, until then here’s a short teaser from our release video  

Hard at work preparing for the pre-order

The last couple of weeks we have been spent on finishing the testing of the hardware and preparing lots of practical things for the production of the new Crazyflie 2.0. With almost all the hardware finished, we are now working hard on preparing for the pre-order. The number of products that are included in the Crazyflie […]

Crazyflie 2.0: Radio range test

As you might already know we have added a 20dBm RF amplifier to the Crazyflie 2.0 as well as to the Crazyradio PA. We have had high hopes of getting a more stable link and much better range with this. We have done a lot of tests in the building we are sitting in and […]

Crazyflie 2.0: LED-ring expansion

A while ago we did a hack where we attached a NeoPixel ring to a Crazyflie. It was just a quick hack to show the concept, but we really liked the results. So we added some more firmware to easily be able to create new effects for the ring and also made it controllable using the Leap […]

Crazyflie 2.0: Qi inductive charging expansion

One of the boards that we have been working on is an inductive charging expansion for the Crazyflie 2.0. Some of you might remember way back when we did an inductive charging hack for the Crazyflie. It’s always been very compelling with wireless charging, we’re not sure why. Maybe it’s because it feels a bit magic For […]

New Crazyradio PA

As we said in previous post, with Crazyflie 2.0 one of the focus has been on enhancing the current Crazyflie platform. The radio range and power is one of these things that is good enough on the current Crazyflie but that could be made much better. So on Crazyflie 2.0 we added a +20dB power […]

Crazyflie 2.0 expansion port

One feature of the new Crazyflie 2.0 that we are especially happy about is the new expansion port. We have attached a lot of hardware to the current Crazyflie and we have also seen lots of users attaching their hardware, but it’s not very easy. The current connector is small, you will need to solder […]

Crazyflie 2.0 debug-adapter board

While designing the Crazyflie 2.0 one of our focuses has been enhancing the current Crazyflie functionality. As a flying development kit the current Crazyflie already has a JTAG debug port that allows to flash and debug the STM32F1 microcontroller. The design uses a standard ARM 10-pins cortex debug connector. The connector is shipped with the Crazyflie […]

Crazyflie 2.0 photos and video

With the help of our new intern Mattias we finally got around to shooting a short video and taking photos of the Crazyflie 2.0 prototypes. We are really excited to finally show the new version and we are looking forward to getting some feedback from our readers. We are currently finalizing the design of the motor […]

Crazyflie 2.0 prototype: From package to flying in 8 hours

When working with hardware there’s always a very intensive phase when you do the initial design, find the correct parts and finally order your prototype. Then you sit around waiting for a month or two until the board shows up with the mail. For a first prototype there are always errors, so you want to […]
