Let’s get started!

If you just bought a Crazyflie 2.X and a good way to start is to head over to the getting started guide, to see how to assemble the kit and take off for your first flight.

If you have just gotten a new Crazyradio 2.0, here are some instructions to get it ready for usage.

If you want to add one of our many expansion decks to the Crazyflie 2.X and need help getting started we have made a Expansion decks tutorial.

Just bought our Loco positioning system or Lighthouse positioning system? Go to the positioning system page for more information and how to setup the system.
