I am running an arducopter SITL simulation in a vagrant virtual machine and when I set the desired speed in my GCS (QGroundControl) to 20m/s for example it will top out at 15m/s. I was wondering if there’s any way to increase the amount of power the simulated vehicle has to allow it to fly faster?
I have looked throughout the GitHub and can’t seem to find where the motor power is set. I found in the SIM_Motor.cpp file there is a function called calculate_forces which has an input parameter of thrust_scale which multiplies the calculated thrust by a fixed value which may help to increase the aircraft power. However I don’t know where this function is called in the simulation.
Any help on this topic would be much appreciated.
