Directions for making .exe to run custom firmware in MP


I have successfully compiled ardupilot on windows (what a nightmare).

I would like to test my custom firmware on mission planner, but I don’t know how to compile the .exe that MP uses in it’s sitl folder…can anyone help?


You got it in Facebook. WSL is the way to go :smiley:

@Autonomost , Hi i am trying the same could you point me in correct the direction ?

The fastest and easiest way is to use WSL(windows subsystem Linux) and build the code on that. Then sim the vehicle using and mavproxy. If your trying to test custom firmware.

If you don’t like mavproxy. Once this is running use mission planner to connect to one of the open UDP ports and manipulate the drone that way.

Thanks, i will have a go at it.
