Using the /cmd_vel topic I can send velocities to my quadcopter, but how is the conversion between the velocity that I send and the thruster's PWM signals? I couldn't find the documentation

Edit: I'm using an AR.Drone 2.0, so ardrone_autonomy is the driver that I'm using.

For anyone to be able to answer you, you'd have to tell them at least which package(s) you are using. There are so many for drones, that we cannot guess.

Sorry, I thought it was the same for any vehicle. I edited the main post. Thanks

Please don't call out people by name.

As to your question: I wouldn't know I'm afraid, I don't do anything with drones.
