Hello. Our Team is trying to simulate a quadplane. We want to use most Systems which are in ArduPlane but with our own aerodynamic-model (JSBSim). Therefore we already build a model which works in FlightGear. Now we want to include the model in ardupilot. For that we copied the model into “ardupilot\Tools\autotest\aircraft”. …
To start the simulation we first start FlightGear(3.4.0) with our model. Than we type in the Cygwin Terminal. “cd ~/ardupilot/ArduPlane” and “sim_vehicle.py -f jsbsim:MyModel”. Now the simulation starts as it should. But the problem is that after connecting to MissionPlanner(220.127.116.11), the vehicle can’t fly or even take-off. We have tried the same with “sim_vehicle.py -f jsbsim:Rascal” with the same problem.
When typing in “sim_vehicle.py -j4 -f quadplane -L KSFO” everything works.
Could you please help us to find out what we did wrong?
