QGroundControl v1.0.0 and MAVLink v1.0.0 Releases closing in

 GroundControl and MAVLink have been improved substantially behind the scenes over the last months. The most obvious new feature on the user level are custom user widgets. You can configure yourself parameter sliders and buttons and even export this widget into a *.qgw file, which other users can import. The video shows how to create a custom attitude control widget for ArduPilotMega. Most of the other improvements are speed and stability improvements which are not directly visible, but improve…See More

The design we pioneered in 2009 for machine vision with Gumstix Overo is now finally available as product from Gumstix. They did a great job of converting our initial raw open source design into a usable product, our internal prototype made it not beyond basic sensor readout routines. The picture on the top shows the…

Posted on February 27, 2011 at 11:30am 19 Comments

This video shows how each user can configure the layout and even individual sliders and buttons of QGroundControl for his personal needs.

Hi, is the ros-mavlink-pkg still being maintained?

It seems there are issues in ROS Electric/Ubuntu 10.04+:

Also, are there any plans to add documentation?

Hi there,

I was wondering if it is possible to order assembled Cheetah or other quadrocopter kits (rough cost estimate?) at this time or if you plan to make one available later in the future?

Cheers,

When will it be possible to see new pixhawk autopilot schematics ? 

At 9:43am on January 20, 2014, kevin zhou said…

I need some suggestion from Pixhawk.

I am thinking to use Pixhawk to make some big UAV helicopter. do you think current version of firmware of helicopter is mature enough to handling a big helicopter? 

When I am taking big helicopter, I am thinking about a nitro helicopter within 2 hours duration. 30 km flight radius. 30 kg payload expectation.

Someone can give me some guide about it ?  Also a suitable air frame is not easy to find, which company produce this kind of good helicopter with a good price ? 

Thank you so much.
