Hi there, I am looking for a decent starting point for a drone project. I've checked the TUM_SIM ( )

And it seems quite stable, nevertheless, anyone has some experience with drones and ROS? What do you recommend? And also for the motion planning, should moveit work for a task like this? Or should I look into other 3d planners? Thanks for the tips!

It's a little hard to give suggestions without any knowing what you're looking for.

Sorry if I was being a bit to vague, I am looking for a good simulator package to integrate with gazebo (like the tum_sim) in which I can simulate an environment, control my drone and plan movement.I know gazebo is powerful enough but I don't want to start from scratch, so far the tum_sim looks good

my experience with drones is connected with the use of the gazebo simulator in conjunction with the mavros.


another one Microsoft AirSim, but i didn't use it.

hector_quadrotor is a good one I've used with success.

I'm not sure what can be used for 3D planning though. I'm pretty sure MoveIt does not support that (I think it only supports planar holonomic platforms) but I could be wrong.
