Hi guys, I’ve been looking at the best way to quickly control my drone using a computer program. I’d like to control my drone as quickly as you see in those videos that use Vicon cameras and retro-reflective balls. Is this possible in Arducopter?
I found this link interesting on using a joystick in QGroundControl to control the quadcopter:
as it covers the MANUAL_CONTROL Mavlink message:
as well as the more traditional SET_POSITION_TARGET_LOCAL_NED message:
Which one of these should I be using to reactively and quickly control my drone? Is there any other method that would allow me to tell my drone where to fly with low latency? Cheers.
