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 […]

Flying robots and Devoxx presentation

This week we were planning on recording some FPV videos around the office with a new transmitter that gives us better range. But after battling with our USB capture device for a while we finally gave up. We will have to try to find a better one (that hopefully works in Linux!). But until then here’s two […]

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 […]

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). […]

Brushless driver for the Crazyflie

A while ago I started working on a brushless motor control driver for the Crazyflie. I implemented most of it but did not really have time to test it. Recently we have gotten some request and questions about it so we took some time to do some further testing. Implementing a brushless motor control driver […]

Joining the business incubator Minc

A couple of weeks ago we moved into the Malmö based business incubator Minc. It’s a great chance to get some extra help developing Bitcraze and also to get a chance to meet people from other start-ups. Below is a picture of a bunch of Crazyflies in our lab (i.e the table designated lab). On a […]

Merry Christmas!

Before it’s time for the holidays we thought that we would do a new video with a Christmas theme, showing our vision of Christmas gift delivery. For anyone that has seen the Amazon Prime Air video, it’s pretty easy to see where we got the inspiration for our video. Needless to say we didn’t have […]

Community development

This Monday post we are devoting to the community development and we will try to give a short summary of what is going on there. We recently haven’t our selves had that much time to help out with this development, something we intend to change, so all credit goes to the community! A port of […]

Autopilot using Kinect and a PC

For the last couple of years (!) we have been discussing on and off about automatically flying the Crazyflie from a PC using OpenCV and a camera. We did a try a while ago using a PS3 Eye camera that wasn’t very successful. One of the issues we were having was detecting the distance from […]
