Hello all,

Is there a good open source GUI for piloting a quadrotor based on ROS ?

Thank you.

I do not know about any special GUI. If I would need it, I'd create a perspective for it in rqt. Well the big question is, what do you need to show there?

Camera? -> rqt_image_view

Battery? -> multiple rqt_plugins available (unfortunately no standard one)

You could also add RViz to it to Visualize a 3D Model of the copter.

I wondered a bit myself and found that one:

Looks pretty useful I think, but I do not see if you can get the code.

Maybe you can get it here, but I do not know if it is really the same one:

Hi, thank you for ground_station this is close to what I was looking for. As for your quesiton, all quadrotors are similar and data you want to see in UI is also similar. Image_View, battery, roll, pitch, etc. I want to make it as generic as possible.

Quadcopter ROS GUI in google gave me :

Model, control and simulate a quadcopter

I am not sure this is the kind of control you want.
