hello, Bill Bonney

how are you?

I am Shin Ji-Seop and I am a team member who is carrying out the project to deliver through the drone.

Our goal is to :

The user transmits the gps information to the server through the Android mobile phone,

and we try to control the dron through gps information input from the server.

We have created a hexcopter with a pixhawk and will use the APM planner2 to control the drones.

I have building APM planner2 through qt creator in ubuntu14.04.

And I have to analyze the source code.

Can I get information about the algorithm in APM planner2?

Or can you tell me how to analyze the apm planner’s source code?

Please reply to qcb1025@gmail.com

Can you help me? Thanks in advance.

Did you try this version?

I have tried 2.0.28-rc1 on my Mac OS 11.5 Big Sur and it seems to run, but the notes for this release say that updating firmware doesn’t work so I’m not sure what good it is? Any idea when 2.0.29 will be available for Mac?
