I found gazebo when I was roaming around and trying to learn how ROS runs. I came across gazebo and it seemed pretty cool. I want to learn if it is a good simulator or can you suggest any other?

Can i use gazebo for drones such as AR.Drone2.0? Or do you suggest anyother simulators or programs?

Yes, you can use gazebo for drones. Take a look:

You have to create model and simple controller for your model. Take a look here for some examples:

I use standalone gazebo for my tasks.

Don't know, if V-Rep is better than gazebo or not. Will try V-Rep in near future.

It's because of the

at the end of the link. Just type it into your address bar. And, yeah, V-REP is great. Far better than gazebo in my book.

Vrep - Yes, V-Rep is better simulator but documentation and tutorials are not straightforward as gazebo. good luck!
