I got an email from Massdrop saying they received the bulk shipment of crazyflie nano quadcopters, are breaking it down and packaging for individual shipments, and shipping the units out, which they hope to have all complete in 24 hours!
So, hopefully, I’ll be looking at my crazyflie kit this weekend… And when I say looking at the kit, I mean looking. I have to look, think, read, examine, investigate, internalize, and digest this all before I make a single move ’cause I don’t want to break anything through general stupidity.
I know a little about electronics. I can solder (semi-well), which is more than many can say. I know a lot about programing. I can do it – even if I don’t know the language, I can figure it out. I do know Python and C so that’s a plus (or a plus, plus… sorry. had to). I know jack about flight mechanics, physics, mathematical computing, radio technology, networking, digital communications, etc, etc, etc… The crazyflie kit relies on some knowledge of a lot of these things and I am but a babe in the woods.
I only say all this to prepare you, my reader, and myself, for the journey we are about to embark on. I intend to learn quite a bit along the journey and to help me remember it, I hope to teach it to you. So, soon, here we go…
