I have autopilot code in Matlab which is communicating very well through udp, now I just want to pull out gps…"
"Thanks jaron, I think I can make it work. May bug you later with few questions if I get stuck somewhere ;)
@DJB: That mathswork's toolbox is NOT useful at all. All they have is 1way interface to Flightgear, it can't get you data back from…"
