SITL or HITL for running and testing arducopter+real-hardware

As a newbie on SITL/HITL, I just want to ask if the following scenary is possible …

Environment simulator (wind conditions, etc) ==> (Arducopter firmware running on the real hardware) <==> GCS as GUI receiving MAVLink data and sending commands as in a real flight

May be a stupid question, but haven’t got a clear idea about reading on wiki and docs


HITL is not currently supported. But you can do exactly as you describe with ArduCopter running in software.

Liking the look of the SITL testing. I will take a closer look very soon. Looks like it could be an invaluable aid for learning the ropes.
