Hi Matthew,

great to hear! We really need to work on the sim as well, help there would be very much appreciated!

Just some comments regarding licensing, etc.: Paparazzi is GPL, meaning that if you want to distribute/sell/share your work, according to the GPL you have to provide the source as well. If you just use it yourself at uni it is fine.
But of course it would be great if you could contribute your changes/additions/fixes, Paparazzi basically lives from that.
I also saw that you use the Vectornav VN-100 IMU and firmware library. I could not find any information on the license of the lib, so I'm not sure if we could actually put the parts of the lib we need into the paparazzi repo.
On the other hand we probably don't need much of that anyway.

Cheers, Felix

I got the simulator working for our quadrotor! I can see the Google earth tiles and our flight plan and all the settings in real time.
Many thanks for help with this, the culprit was indeed the -boot and -norc options, along with tracking down a nasty sigfault in JSBSim
I hope to write more about our project on my wiki page in the coming days (no pictures yet)
Not sure if our contract will allow us to commit our code to the public repository, as the University technically owns our work. I will check back on this.
Again thank you to all who answered my paparazzi-related questions

Hi Matthew,

the boot and and norc options are actually for the simple ocaml fixedwing
So maybe we should add a default session "Rotorcraft simulation" that does
not add these parameters?
You can also just edit the line in paparazzi center and remove the -boot
-norc and execute the sim again, then it should work. (Then maybe save it as
your own sim session).
