I am planning to do a project on quadcopter incorporating SLAM, and i am a newbee , I am planning to build my own flight controller with an arduino and I am planning on using ros for SLAM,for that i think the urdf file of the quad is required so my question is Is it possible to use this flight controller for the quadcopter and then incorporate slam? if yes can anyone give me an idea

You have several concepts mixed in here. URDF is a modelling language that specifies the physical properties of your robot. It is not a controller for anything. It also is not usually a prereq for SLAM.

let me break it down , what iam asking is Is it possible to publish the real time status of the quadcopter from the arduino (which is used as the flight controller) to ROSmaster so that this data is further available for the slam node to be subscribed to and then send corresponding contrls 2 ardino
