Bitcraze and the Crazyflie

Ever wanted a development-kit that flies? We did, so we developed the Crazyflie Nano Quadcopter! The goal with the Crazyflie was to give users a flying base for their development. We wanted to create an open source platform that would be fun to use, as well as give the users the possibility to work on and experiment with a wide range of features and areas.

In order for users to quickly get going with their flying and development we provide a virtual machine with everything that is needed, documentation of the project and design as well as a range of different software. Flying is done from our main client software where you can use a variety of joysticks as well as the Leap Motion. You can also use our custom SD-card image for flying from the Raspberry Pi or our Android client for flying from your smartphone.

We are constantly working on improving the design and trying to come up with fun new hacks and experiments that we implement and show users how to do. Through our community everyone get the chance to join in the discussion and development as well as take part and contribute to all the documentation.

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 2.0 launch is a lot more than we had for the current Crazyflie, which means that there’s a lot more things to be done. We are really excited about releasing Crazyflie 2.0 and can’t wait to see what you will do with it. We don’t want to promise anything but stay tuned, the pre-order launch has never been so close :-).
