@iampete I look forward to testing this out and using it. This is a tool I would use frequently.
@kikislater Not sure why you guys are going all EMO over this, it is a GSoC project, it adds to the overall Ardupilot landscape weather or not you use it. There are plenty of features and tools related to Ardupilot that are never touched again. If you want it in GNU Octave, NumPy, or R do it yourself, don’t criticize someone else’s project because it isn’t what you want. R does not have the back end to do this easily.
Citing a 11 year old document with regards to any software as to what it is good at and or for is a colossal joke. Every company I have worked and consulted for uses Matlab, not an opinion a fact.
