Modification of a model

I need to modify the model of the bottom camera of the AR.Drone model (I'm using this simulator) because it has a much bigger FOV (field of view) than the real model.

And I also want to add some disturbances (i.e, the drone is not as stable as the model). How can I do that? Just put some random movements in a python script or is there any better solution?

Maybe you should post this as an issue on the repo? Who knows if the developer looks at this site.

You can change the fov in the QLAB/qlab/qlab_description/urdf/sensors/generic_camera.urdf.xacro file

Can the fov be not a square (i.e, be rectangular)? It says <xacro:generic_camera name="bottom" sim_name="ardrone" parent="base_link" update_rate="60" res_x="84" res_y="84" image_format="L8" hfov="${81*M_PI/180}"> How does that hfov works? I suppose that you have to give an angle or something like that
