Possible useful UAV programming codes

UAV codes.pdf

I am only about 4 hours into my "self-induced" C++ tutorial course starting from "what is a programming language?" So I cannot determine with great certainty how useful the included codes in the attached project may be. I hope that it would help some of you way ahead of me in the programming department.

Would appreciate any feedback on the usability of these codes...

For those who are confused, this is just a link to a 2006 university paper on an autopilot design. Not sure what he means by "codes", but there is some algorithm stuff in it. Looks like a pretty standard autopilot, but it's a short paper and clear for those who want a primer.

Skip the C++ and learn C, or better yet learn Python. C++ is a great language if you already have a foundation in another language (especially an OOP one like Python), but I would never recommend to someone who has never programmed before.

I agree. Start with C. (Arduino is basically C)

Thank you both. It's been a long time since I was learning Basic on the Apple IIc...

Only had a few hours so far invested in C++. Will switch to C. This autopilot project is a sum of so many things (flying, electronics, computers, gadgets, etc) I have been interested doing for a long long time that it's worth the effort. I would also like to become to some degree independent in being able to adapt and assemble programs for my application.
