UAV Project Progress - flight gear simulation, first steps

I am working on using flight gear to simulate and test my UAV code. The screen shot shows flight gear and the C# application that is receiving the data. the way I see it, the first step is to read some data out of flight gear. I am using a TCP socket to read the data. I have achieved display of the raw string of data. My next step will be to parse the data into meaningful bits. I have been looking all over the net for information on using flight gear for UAV simulation. I haven't found anything I can use, so I am trying the roll your own approach. The idea is to be able to run my own control algorithms on live flight gear data.

Let me know in the comments if you know of any prior work that I could use to facilitate this.

Looks like a great start! BTW, Curt Olson is very repsonsive to emails etc, so you might try asking him questions directly. And when you get it working, please post a How To here!

Is anyone aware of a simulation search and rescue mission program with UAV options? Looking for one that can run test cases and produce data for my study.
