MAVProxy is a open source minimalist and plugin-based GCS for Mavlink based autopilots (such as the APM). Until recently, it was only able to run on Linux systems. It has since been updated by Tridge and myself to include full compatibility for Windows systems.
MAVProxy can be found at https://github.com/tridge/MAVProxy and an installation and user's guide is available at http://www.qgroundcontrol.org/mavlink/mavproxy_startpage.
And the obligatory screenshot of MAVProxy running in Windows and Linux at the same time (above)
I'm having some problems getting the modules to work in windows. im also making a mode detailed guide for it to put on the dev wiki. I have it working in ubuntu
This is what i have done so far:
i have no MAVProxy folder in C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\
param: parameter handling
relay: relay handling
tuneopt: tuneopt command handling
arm: arm/disarm handling
mode: mode handling
calibration: calibration handling
rc: rc command handling
auxopt: auxopt command handling
misc: misc commands
Other than the modules everything works fine. MAVProxy is Awesome!! :)
Thanks for your hard work and fantastic job !!!
Simon - I've just checked the pymavlink utilities and they all work quite nicely under Windows :)
Thank you stephen! I think this is very usefull for people which use Mission planner because of the excellent graphing utilities coming with pymavlink (do they work on windows?).
Way to go! Outstanding work Stephen....
I had a go at getting it all running on Windows a while back, but got frustrated and never got it done. I'm glad Stephen has more patience with windows development than I do :-)
Woohoo! Great job, Stephen!
