Back in November when we got the pre-series we shot an assembly video showing how to assemble a Crazyflie kit. We shot it in Tobias shed in his back garden where it was about 10*C, that’s why Marcus is wearing a winter jacket. It was also pretty late and it’s the 7th Crazyflie in a row that we have tested and assembled, so we where pretty tired. We are not trying to find excuses but it might not have been our best work. For example the words “the best way” is frequently used, and due to our Swedish heritage, “one good way” might have been more appropriate, but that day we where just feeling confident :-).
If you have ~8 minutes to spare have a look at the video, so you know what to expect in terms of assembly, when you pretty soon will be able to pre-order the kit.

after launching please go on with the Crazycam for fpv flying ;)
We will do our best :-) Hopefully we will have more time after launching but like always, time is something that we are short on. Hopefully we can get some help with the development in the future.
Nice work, just spotted this on TheVerge:
By the way, today I was reading this: http://www.gizmag.com/mecam-tiny-autonomous-uav/26007/ and I thought it looked familiar :)
Wow! After following all the progress through the past months, I really can’t wait any longer. This video will have to hold me over to the presale. Thank you so much!
Wow! Great progress! As soon as these have an FPV capability, you got yourself another customer. Great job!
Also, compatibility with Spektrum Controllers would be awesome. Is that possible already or no?
Sorry, no Spektrum compatibility more then that the Crazyradio could work as a transmitter module reading the PPM output from the spektrum transmitter. It would be a bit hackish though. There is also a possibility to add a separate lightweight spectrum receiver. No firmware support for that yet though.
