[Paparazzi-devel] Mikrokopter and Paparazzi

Hi all,
I've been developing an intelligent quadrocopter based on the design.

I'm just doing it for my own personal interest and have contributed to several open-source projects.

One thing missing is a decent ground control station. I have successfully played around with the Paparazzi GCS on a Funjet and am happy with it's modular and open design.

Just wondering if anyone has attempted to merge the Paparazzi Project with the Mikrokopter Project by using the Paparazzi ground station (GCS) to control the mikrokopter hardware?

I've seen a paper by Antoine et al titled "Waypoint Navigation, Stabilization and Sensor Drift Compensation of VTOL MAV" where these platforms are mentioned but nothing about a decent GCS.

Anyhow, if nothing has yet been done, I was thinking that the best way to achieve this is to simply make an interface to map the Paparazzi GCS commands to/from the Mikrokopter.

In order to save me "re-inventing the wheel", just wondering whether anyone has done this or could offer some useful advice. Otherwise, I'll start the project from scratch and place it in the Paparazzi & Mikrokopter repositories.

Cheers, Mark
