Can I use MAVROS without connecting to a FCU?

Is it possible to use MAVROS to only convert messages from Mavlink messages to ROS messages and vice-versa? I do not want a connection to a FCU, like you are forced to have (I do not have a Mavlink enabled drone).

Thanks for any help!

It's unclear why you want to do this. If you want to simulate a drone or rover, you might use SITL and mavproxy with mavros. (That's how we're simulating a rover.) See:

We are using a DJI drone, with which we interact only with ROS messages (sending commands/receiving position/...). The messages will be sent over the RC in Mavlink format. What we now need is only to convert those Mavlink messages to ROS and vice-versa.
