I did some searching on here for comparisons of the different ground station software out there and haven't found much. I was wondering about some of the different set-ups and how effective they would be at handling different configs:
I am wanting to do a Quadcopter (Arducopter) and a ground vehicle, and set them up to operate individually from the same ground control and autopilot boards. I am still in the process of building my chassis, so I haven't gotten started on experimenting with different ground controls. I have seen available...
Q ground control
APM Mission Planner
is anyone willing to give a bit of a breakdown or comparison of these suites? I saw a google spreadsheet that had a comparo of autopilots
and thought that something similar for the ground control/mission planner software might be beneficial. I could set up the google apreadsheet, but i would not be able to fill it in more than TItles, as I dont have any real experience with any of them.
I'm not sure this is possible. Things change every day on these programs and it will be very difficult to keep up.
As far as your list, X-Plane isn't a stand-along GCS to my knowledge....
You might want to add OpenPilot, Paparazzi GCS, FY GCS, MicroPilot Horizon, Procerus, GluonPilot GCS, Robota GCS.... plus there are a bunch of other homebrew Linux and Mac GCS' out there you could possibly add to the list.
