"Andrew. I got the simulation working by renaming ..\MAVProxy\eggs\mavproxy-1.4.32-py2.7.egg to something arbitrary. This left ..\mavproxy-1.6.1-py2.7.egg
This was a standard windows installation, so it appears the file is a leftover from a previous…"
"Additional comment: sim_vehicle.sh contains a hard coded folder reference "c/users/username/github/arduino". This is not good coding. I am not the only person to use c-drive ssd for boot only and d-drive as a mechanical raid array for…"
The SITL for Windows discussion appears to be dead since Feb of last year.I will post my query here in the hope it gets noticed."I setup sitl on Windows 7. I followed the recipe in the web documentation exactly. Cygwin is working fine. Mavproxy installed without errors. Python installed into the virtual Linux environment ok. jbsim is installed properly. I then built the sitl versions of ArduPlane and ArduCopter sucessfully without errors. Ticks to everything.When I run Mavproxy from the…See More

"Paul, the problem with measuring tank contents in an aircraft is that the fluid is subject to forces outside of the aircraft's inertial frame of reference. Put simply, the fluid sloshes around. Full size aircraft face this problem. Float…"
"Nothing can drive a steeper motor, but you are correct - BGC cannot drive stepper motors. I can however drive BLDC motors in micro-stepping mode, and BLCD motors are "dirt" cheap. I did not offer a solution to George's problem of…"
"Here is an idea. Get any gymbal controller. There are cheap clones on eBay. These are designed to run two stepper motors in micro-stepping mode. The micro-stepping mode gives you less torque but finer resolution and is ok if you balance your…"
"Ok, now I get it. I just had a look at the perp's profile. He's a commercial vendor and my comment seems to have offended his commercial interests. I was not aware this was a site offering free advertising to vendors in exchange for…"
