It’s been another busy week at Bitcraze. Unfortunately we are lagging a bit behind on pull-requests and such, but we are doing our best to catch up. Also development taking place in the forum has accelerated and we will try to summarize some of it next week.
The planning for the next batch is finished and it’s now going into production. Expected to be ready in the end of June. For this batch we have modified the motor-mounts to add some space at the bottom and also increased the size of the “stopper” at the bottom of the mount to keep the motor from popping out.
From now, as been requested, we will also start offer the parts of the kit separately: The Crazyflie 6/10-DOF, the Crazyradio and the antenna. Aside from this we will still be offering the previous kits and all the spare parts.
A new source version of the Crazyflie PC client has been uploaded to the Bitbucket page. Since this new version mostly fixes critical bugs related to mac, there’s no new version for the Windows installer.
For the next version of the windows installer we are looking at packaging and installing Crazyradio driver with the client. We are also looking at making Ubuntu packages accessible in a PPA as well as Fedora/OpenSuse packages. This would simplify the Client installation on Linux. ArchLinux already have a package in AUR courtesy of Gergely Imreh.

Man i’d love to order one of those asap but it’s definitly out of my financial range at the moment. Well…at least it’s a great christmas gift! Keep up the good work i’m really looking forward to playing with a crazyfly.

Will the new motor mounts also be available as spare parts and is there any plan to offer some of the 3d-printable addons like frames and washers?
I really like my crazyflie but in 4 days I already damaged 2 motors :(
Yes, the new motor mount will be available as spare parts. We are still working on the design though…
It would be great if we could offer some of the models as plastic parts but currently we are swamped with work so it’s not something we can do now. But we won’t rule it out for the future.
Would be cool if the crazyflie 6/10 board itself would be available as spare part.. without any motormounts, motors, propellers and crazyradio.
That’s a good suggestion. We can’t do it for this batch but we will consider it for the next one.
Could you please go to this forum and create a new topic where you describe your problem a bit more in detail. If you can describe it in English that would be great.
Thaks for making the parts available. Looking forward to the new motor mounts. I put a dab from the glue gun at the base of the motors. It protect the wire and cushions the base a bit.
