Descriptions

The Crazyflie 2.1 is a versatile open-source flying development platform that only weighs 27g and fits in the palm of your hand. Crazyflie 2.1 is equipped with a low-latency/long-range radio as well as Bluetooth LE. This gives you the option of downloading our app and using your mobile device as a controller or, in combination with the Crazyradio PA, using your computer to display data and fly with a game controller.

The latest version of the successful Crazyflie development platform comes with improved flight performance, durability, and radio. Together with an extensive ecosystem of software and deck expansions, it's ideal for education, research, and swarming.

Crazyfly 2.1 is designed to be as flexible as possible. This meant adding as many features as users could fit and writing firmware made to be modified. In addition to the default functionality that comes with the Crazyflie 2.1 that added a flexible expansion interface where a variety of expansion decks can be attached, both on the top and the bottom of the Crazyflie 2.1. From this expansion interface the user can access buses such as UART, I2C and SPI as well as PWM, analog in/out and GPIO.

Getting started

Go to Getting started with the Crazyflie 2.1 to build your crazyflie, update its firmware and fly with it with the clients. Also take a look at our System overview to learn more about Crazyflie’s ecosystem of positioning systems, Clients and of course the crazyflie itself with its expansion decks.

Application

Use the Crazyflie 2.X for development

The Crazyradio PA enables you to connect the Crazyflie 2.X to a computer wireless and download new firmware, modified to your liking. The logging and parameter frameworks provide APIs for getting and setting data in the Crazyflie 2.X live, even when you are flying! All software, firmware, as well as clients on the computer that is open source and the source code is available for you to play with as you like.

Paint in the dark with a Crazyflie

The Crazyflie 2.X is fun to fly as is but adding the LED-ring deck and flying in the dark adds a new dimension. The RGB LEDs let you choose any colour and with some coding any light sequence can be displayed, for instance, controlled by the on board sensors. Why not take photos with an open shutter of a moving Crayflie 2.X and paint in the dark?

assistance when flying the Crazyflie and Crazyradio PA

Flying a quadcopter like the Crazyflie manually requires some skill and practising. By adding the Flow deck v2 the Crazyflie gets more information about its motion and can assist the pilot.

note: Currently assisted mode is only supported when flying using a computer and gamepad, not with a mobile device.

awareness of the surroundings to the Crazyflie and Crazyradio PA

The Multi-ranger deck measures the distance to objects forward/back/left/right and up. It can be used for obstacle avoidance, mapping a room or games where the Crazyflie 2.X “bounces” between the walls of a room. Combine with a Flow deck v2 to measure the distance to the floor as well and support autonomous flight.

FAQ

1. Which mobile devices work with the Crazyflie 2.X?

Here is a list of requirements for the mobile device:

  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or sometimes called Bluetooth Smart support.
  • Runs Android 4.4 or newer
  • Runs iOS 7.1 or newer

2. Is the Crazyflie 2.0 still supported?

Yes, the Crazyflie 2.0 is still supported with the same firmware and PC software as the Crazyflie 2.1

3. For how long can the Crazyflie 2.X fly?

It can fly up to 7 minutes and depending on how you fly it, the time will decrease.

4. How is the Crazyflie 2.X charged?

It is charged using a standard micro-USB connector commonly used by smartphones. You probably have one of these cables at home. You can charge it from any USB unit that can supply 500mA, most computers and adapters do. It takes up to 40min to charge and the blue LED (M3) will tell you roughly how charged it is by how long it is lit. When it is fully lit it is fully charged.

    definitely the best one that I have used!
    I don't know if Crazyflie is the best open-source quadcopter development platform, but it is definitely the best one that I have used! It is as easy to operate as a simple RTF quadcopter, but is also fully open-source, well-documented, highly expandable, and super easy to assemble and use.

    beginner-friendly
    I bought a drone for advanced users a few years ago, but it was quite difficult for beginners. This product is quite easy to assemble, and as the description says, no soldering required. Tested it a few times in my room, very stable!
