We have been thinking for a while about making a Crazyflie control board that could be used to make a bigger quadcopter using the Crazyflie firmware and deck. This idea has materialized in the Crazyflie RZR project.
The Crazyflie RZR is a quadcopter controller board based on the Crazyflie design, as pointed if our previous blog post, it is intending to bring the strength of the CF2 but in a little bit bigger package :-). It runs the Crazyflie firmware and feature the Crazyflie 2.0 deck port. It is capable of driving brush-less motor controller and has an uFL port for an external 2.4GHz antenna. It also contains the new quadcopter-optimized Bosch BMI088 IMU. We have made some progress lately on the Crazyflie RZR, we have just got the first initial sample from the manufacturer shown in the picture above.
We are not sure yet when the RZR will be in the shop, but the project is definitely going forward. We will keep posting information about the project as it develop.
