Fly this quadcopter dev kit with a gamepad from your computer. Then step it up: code your own flight controller and add custom hardware.

The Crazyflie Nano Quadcopter is a miniature quadcopter that fits in your hand. It only weights about 19 grams and is 9 cm motor-to-motor. Aside from being fun to fly, it’s main purpose is to be a versatile development platform that can be used to experiment, develop and explore a lot of different areas of technology.

  • Lightweight quadcopter kit
  • Easy to assemble & built for hacking
  • Control by PC via USB Dongle
  • Flying DEV kit takes your code to the real world

How do I use the quadcopter?

The quadcopter is flown by connecting a USB radio dongle and a controller to a host system, and then running the Crazyflie client software. This could either be a computer (running Linux or Windows), an Android device that supports USB OTH/HOST or an embedded system like the Raspberry Pi.

For input a wide range of controllers can be used when connected to your PC. There are also RC-controllers that you can connect directly to the Crazyflie Nano Quadcopter. For more information on controllers 


The development platform is open source so schematics and firmware/host source code is available at the Bitcraze website as well as a Wiki with design information and details on how to set up the development environment and get started. It’s designed with development in mind and has an expansion header that enables developers to expand the platform as well as good software development support. Due to it’s small size it’s perfect for developing new software and can easily be flown inside. It can lift a payload of up to 5 - 10 g.
 
This is the 10 DOF version of Crazyflie that integrate extra sensors for altitude and heading measurement. There is yet no firmware support for these sensors but they have the potential to enable heading and altitude control. If you want to develop a new algorithm or if you want to be able to use some advanced algorithm that might be created for these sensor you should definitely consider the 10-DOF version.
 
A 2.4 GHz radio chip from Nordic Semiconductors is used for receiving commands and sending telemetry data back to the host computer. The communication with the host is made possible by using the Crazyradio 2.4 GHz USB radio dongle. The Crazyradio can be connected to a PC (with support for Windows and Linux) but also to other hosts that support USB Host or OTG like Android phones. Mac OSX currently has beta support handled by the community.
 
The Crazyflie Quadcopter is shipped pre-programmed but can easily be wirelessly updated via a radio bootloader from a host PC, so no JTAG is required for reprogramming. For advanced development and debugging there’s also an accessible JTAG interface.
