The Crazyflie is a tiny quadcopter often referred to as a nano-quad, built using the PCB itself as the frame. Developed solely by open source tools and designed with development in mind.A Crazyflie Nano Quadcopter include a crazyflie and a crazyradio.
The Crazyflie is controlled from a computer using an input device such as a game controller (PS3 or Xbox 360). A USB radio dongle is used to send control data from the controller/computer to the quadcopter.

The primary stage
1 x Crazyflie control board
5 x motor mounts (one as spare)
5 x coreless motors (one as spare)
5 x CW propellers
5 x CCW propellers
Tools you need：
Soldering iron and solder
Tweezers and a clamp or third-hand can come in handy
Check the electronics
Before you go ahead and assemble the Crazyflie check the Crazyflie control board and the Crazyradio electronics:
Attach a powered micro-USB cable to the Crazyflie control board. It should power up and blink 5 times with the green LED. After that the green LED should be fully on and the red LED should blink.
