Firmware - PX4 Pro Autopilot Software

  •        584

This repository holds the PX4 Pro flight control solution for drones, with the main applications located in the src/modules directory. It also contains the PX4 Drone Middleware Platform, which provides drivers and middleware to run drones. This Developer Guide is for software developers who want to modify the flight stack and middleware (e.g. to add new flight modes), hardware integrators who want to support new flight controller boards and peripherals, and anyone who wants to get PX4 working on a new (unsupported) airframe/vehicle.

qgroundcontrol - Dronecode cross-platform ground control station for drones (Android, iOS, Mac OS, Linux, Windows)

  •    C++

Source code for QGroundControl is kept on GitHub: https://github.com/mavlink/qgroundcontrol. Each time you pull new source to your repository you should run git submodule update to get the latest submodules as well. Since QGroundControl uses submodules, using the zip file for source download will not work. You must use git.
