Hi everyone,

I have just started learning how to use ROS a week ago. In this tutorial listed here Quadrotor indoor SLAM demo, the instruction for downloading the prerequisite is for groovy. I have tried changing the <distro> to hydro but it still doesn't download. Looking through the help in stack installation on how to download git files has yielded no results too.

Can anyone guide me on how to go about getting the hector_quadrotor?

I have downloaded the pkg. However it is not the catkin version. I tried to download the catkin version but an error appeared: fatal: https://github.com/tu-darmstadt-ros-pkg/hector_quadrotor/tree/catkin/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?

Don't use the GitHub URL from the browser directly to clone the repository. The repository URL is https://github.com/tu-darmstadt-ros-pkg/hector_quadrotor.git. GitHub shows the "HTTPS clone URL" in the right sidebar.

I have managed to download the catkin version by clicking on the "download as zip" button. Thanks to End-Effector for the help. Now to build it.

I am having a problem with installing the program. catkin_make doesn't install the packages as it was hoped. Anyone else having similar issues?
