First of all, thanks to everyone that helped us out during the pre-order. Today we are finishing the last details and tomorrow Seeedstudio will launch the production of the first Crazyflie 2.0 batch! It’s been a hectic couple of months here at Bitcraze and it feels great to finally have reached this point. For the first batch we will manufacture more units than were pre-ordered. So from now up until the units are ready we will continue the pre-order, but without the discounted prices. The first batch is planing to start shipping mid-December. We are prioritizing the discounted pre-order but will ship everything as soon as possible.
Last week we published the iOS prototype code for controlling the Crazyflie 2.0. This week we are publishing the Crazyflie 2.0 expansion board template project. The project is done using KiCad and includes the schematics, the footprint mapping and an initial layout with the connectors in the correct place. The license of the template project is CC-BY 4.0. In order for users to more easily see what their expansion board will look like and how it will fit, we have included the Crazyflie 2.0 board outline as well as some key components that might interfere.
We are really excited to see if any cool expansion board projects will come out of this template. So if you feel like giving it a try then head over to GitHub, clone the repository and add some cool stuff. Any ideas of what to do?
