The Crazyflie 2.0 is a versatile flying development platform that only weights 27g and fits in the palm of your hand. It’s advanced functionalities makes it ideal for developers and the Bluetooth LE capabilities makes it easy to fly from mobile devices. With it’s small size and weight it’s ideal for indoor use, but you can just as easily hover above your house as you can hover under your diningroom table. Designed as a solderless kit, the Crazyflie 2.0 is quickly assembled by attaching the motors to the circuitboard frame and it’s ready to fly.

The Crazyflie 2.0 is an open project, with source code and hardware design available and documented. The platform is designed with development in mind, implementing features to make development easier and faster, such as logging and real-time parameter setting and wireless firmware update. The complete development environment for most of the projects is available in the virtual machine, so you don’t need to install any toolchains to get into the development. But the virtual machine can just as well be used for flying. Aside from the firmware and software projects, there is also a number of community supported APIs written in Java, Ruby, C/C++, C# and Javascript. For anyone interested in doing more advanced development there is a development adapter kit that supports easy JTAG/SWD connection to both of the MCUs on the Crazyflie 2.0.
