Hi. I would like to combine gmapping for indoor aerial vehicle. Something similar as However, I think they used custom Gmapping, not a stack on ROS. Clear path to achieve will be

Subscribe IMU to correct laser scans with respect to attitude. Subscribe height from some sensor (sonar, laser). Provide corrected information to gmapping.

If there is an implementation to do this, it would be great to know that. If it is not, it is good to know that how to provide height information to gmapping.

You might want to check hector_quadrotor.

Hi with a kinect you can also use this stack from ASLab.

This will give you a nice odometry(6D pose) information using only the kinect. You can then send the odometry tf and a fake laser scan(assuming with kinect) to the gmapping server.

If you have a proper laser then as maruchi said you can use the hector* stacks.
