Coding UAVs with ROS. Subscribing to FCU data.

I have just published Part 2 of this series, designed to develop skills in Python and ROS so as to achieve flexible control of a UAV.  It's based on a Pixhawk FCU with Raspberry Pi companion computer.  The Pixhawk is running PX4, but it would also work with minor modifications with Arducopter.  

I have also re-released Part 1 with some important updates (necessary due to recent changes in ROS).

We are heading towards a system that will fly autonomously and recognise and track objects in it's vicinity using some machine learning.

Part 2 is on my blog site here.  I hope some may find it useful!
