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 […]

Crazyflie 2.0 based Master thesis for flying meshed sensor array

At Bitcraze we often get into discussions about crazy ideas that we would like to test out. Most of them are just that, crazy ideas, that are hard to realize or that we never have time for and the discussion ends (and a new one begins). But one of these discussions have been popping up time […]

The next generation – Crazyflie 2.0

It’s been more than a year now since the Crazyflie Nano Quadcopter was released and it’s been a great journey! It’s been great to see users all over the world assembling their Crazyflies and doing all kinds of things with them. The list of cool things that have been done is long! During this time […]

Last week at Devoxx UK

Like we mentioned a couple of weeks ago we went to Devoxx UK last week exhibiting the Crazyflie. We got a chance to do lots of fun things, like flying the FPV quad in the keynote and also over the exhibition floor. The image is a bit faded, but we had the luck of having […]

Things happening in the community

It’s been a while since we summed up things happening in the community so here’s some of the things that are happening. There’s lots of more things, so if you think we are missing something, then post it in the comments below. Ralph has been doing some work on an semi-automatic flip feature in the […]

Crazyflie and NeoPixel ring continued

Continuing our post last week here’s a video showing the Adafruit NeoPixel ring and some of the effects that we did. The client code still needs some cleaning up, but the firmware is pushed here. The firmware implementation includes two parameters, ring.neffect and ring.effect. The first parameter is used to know how many effects are […]

NeoPixel driver for the Crazyflie’s STM32

A couple of weeks ago we found the NeoPixel ring from Adafruit at a local shop, we had to attach this neat board to our copter and see what cool effect we could make with it. The ring has 16 RGB LEDs that can be driven independently with only one data wire. The LEDs the Neopixel […]

Bitcraze at Devoxx France

Most of last week was spent at the Devoxx France conference in Paris. Even though we didn’t have our talk until the end of the week, we hung around most of the time just developing and working. And of course we also got the chance to meet lots of interesting people and demo the Crazyflie. […]

Logging and parameter frameworks tutorial continued

A while ago we posted a tutorial on how to modify the firmware to add logging/parameters and to plot/modify them from the client. We have done a continuation on this tutorial to show how to modify the client to integrate logging and parameters directly into the UI (like we have done on the flight tab). […]
