With the BigQuad deck you can transform your Crazyflie 2.0 to a bigger quad by connecting external ESCs (Electronic Speed Controller) to the breakout connectors on the deck. The autodetection of the deck makes this transformation possible to do in seconds. The deck contains breakout header connectors for additional accessories such as external receiver (CPPM input) and GPS. It also has the possibility to monitor battery voltage and current.
This product is intended to be used together with the Crazyflie 2.0 quadcopter and uses its expansion board system. Please have a look at the buyers guide for more info about the Crazyflie 2.0 ecosystem. For more information about how to use the expansion decks check out the getting started with expansion decks page.
This product is in early access stage. It means that while the hardware is working and tested, the software is still pretty much work in progress. For more information see the early access description page.
