How it works

This product is under development and will soon be available!

Crazyradio 2.0 is a long range open USB radio dongle based on the nRF52840 from Nordic Semiconductor, featuring a 20dBm power amplifier and LNA.

The Crazyradio 2.0 is not only for usage together with the Crazyflie family of devices, since it’s an open project with open firmware and a Python API, it’s a great building block for systems that require more predictable latency compared to WiFi and doesn’t have the same requirements for bandwidth. The hardware comes with a bootloader that enables firmware upgrades via USB without any additional hardware needed.

The Crazyradio 2.0 is compatible with the Crazyflie eco system.
