Simulink Model of ArduCopter

Hi there… I am new to the community but have been observing for some time. I’ve noticed in the past several have expressed interest in obtaining or building a Simulink model for the ArduCopter s/w that runs on many of our quads, etc. Does anyone know if this has been done? If not, is anyone interested in working together as a community to build a library that would allow many to simulate their own additions to the master ardupilot software?

I know it’s been a while, but have you started working towards this?

Hi scott – I was able to succesfully model the quadcopter (based on 3DR
Solo) but have not made any progress on the arducopter control algorithms.
Do you have interest in this? Would you be able to contribute?


I’m definitely interested; as for the ability to contribute, I’ve got matlab/simulink and some time (mostly on weekends). However, it will be a bit of learning project for me as I’ve got some background in controls, but limited experience in Simulink. I’m in the midst of a GNC certificate program and see this as an opportunity to apply it.
