Can I configure simulated quadcopter in SITL?


Is it possible to configure quadcopter parameters in SITL?

I want to configure a drone with specific motors, propellers, weight and set of sensors. I guess that there would have to be some parameters that I can read of these components (or derive by computation) and enter into SITL and simulate the expected drone behavior.

Any link to documentation or tutorial would be greatly appreciated!

I found the answer in documentation:


Hi @eva01
Did you manage to change the motors, propellers, and battery, or maybe the weight or frame diameter?

I was not able to find any information about how to set the takeoff weight of the SITL drone in arducopter. Can you please specify where exactly you found the information to set the drone’s take-off weight?
