I love quads, especially microquads. I was flying FPV in my house with a brushless Super-X


(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLLIeKl4VwI , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjDuJsByE4o) at least two years before the Tiny Whoop craze took off.
I'm seriously failing to see the attraction with this. What are the pros over, say, my old Super-X (with a barometer, as demo'd in the first video) using MultiWii or a more recent KingKong 90GT (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrWtOFontfw) using BetaFlight?
You can hack away at the firmware to your heart's content, and brushless motors means your payload capacity goes up massively.
At $200 USD I expect brushless motors, 2S, an 800TVL camera and a 200MW VTX. Not a brushed 1s that doesn't even have a 2.4Ghz receiver.

For FPV use, the crazyflie is indeed not as appropriate as the KingKong GT and SuperX, despite the existence of a specific FPV thread [1], since it was developed as an expandable research, development and tinkering flying robot platform [2][3].

Wow, brings back horrible memories. Nearly 100 Euros (110 ish USD) for a camera and VTX. Now you can get an all-in-one with antenna for under $20 on Banggood (eg https://www.banggood.com/Eachine-EF-01-AIO-5_8G-40CH-25MW-VTX-800TVL-13-Cmos-FPV-Camera-p-1064301.html). Still, that's what you expect after over two years. Price drops and improved hardware.
Yeah, FPV isn't a focus here - I only really mentioned it to vaguely highlight what I was already doing on the cheap with a brushless micro before CrazyFlie 2.0 was released.
I had a look at links [2] and [3] - some interesting stuff being done, especially with swarms... but I've seen some crazy stuff being done on other platforms. Is the API super simple/easy to write for? MultiWii was a nightmare with a massive IDE cliff you needed to climb first which dissuaded a lot of people from even thinking about creative algos. A simple, hassle-free IDE/SDK alone would be worth a nice premium.
As for the expansion decks, I really really REALLY like the Loco Positioning System. THAT you could sell separately to plug in to existing drones - accurate indoor positioning on a small camera drone like the Mavic? Plug-in compatibility to a betaflight board? Instant seller.
I saw also that there's a prototype brushless version, which I assume will supersede this one. Good, but that brings me back to my main issue - the 2.5 years old CrazyFlie 2.0's MSRP of $180 (direct from bitcraze - cheaper, but the radio is more expensive?!) for what is in the drone world less than 'meh'.
As an all-in-one complete package with several expansion decks, yay!
As a base model? Not so yay. Especially now that I know there's a brushless CrazyFlie 3.0 coming soon. Ish.
I get that CrazyFlie is aimed at Western schools/universities and people with research grants, but I wouldn't be surprised that for every student who buys one there are five who skip it and choose the hard way.

Everyone,
There seems to be some confusion in regards to the USB dongle. This drop and the previous drop did not come with the Crazyradio PA - long range 2.4Ghz USB radio dongle and it has been said that the Crazyflie will not work without it. You can easily use your mobile phone or your computer via bluetooth to control it.
The pictures on the drop page do have the Crazyradio PA - long range 2.4Ghz USB radio dongle as an example but it was not an include or an option for the Crazyflie 2.0 Nano Quadcopter drop.
Going forward we will remove the pictures that are causing the confusion.

Why can this not be shipped to Australia when the previous drop was?
Fun little quad, size is deceiving - this thing is a demon with wings. (or should I say props) Oddly enough, I found Crazyfile 2.0 on Maker today. They're offering it at $79.95 with 10% off for first time buyers.
Considering getting a couple more to have on hand for parts.

I was also under the impression that this came with the dongle. Since it was in many of the pictures and listed in the included items. -Update: Has anyone heard from Massdrop on this?
