Hi everyone! I'm fresh from ROScon and am trying to impiment hector_quadrotor on 12.04 with fuerte. I am running into a problem with the first demo. What I've done:

1.I took down every part of the stack to make sure that I didn't miss anything.

 svn co

2.I then attempted to build the stack

parcon@PC-MBA:~/ros_workspace/trunk$ rosmake hector_quadrotor

Hi Parker, we did not make the switch to fuerte yet and are working on setting everything up so both distributions are properly supported. The main/most time consuming problem is the fact that all plugins for quadrotor simulation have to be changed to use the new Gazebo 1.0 plugin API. I'll update this posting with a approximate time estimate of fuerte compatibilty when I talked to all people involved later today. The bottomline is: You have to use electric for the moment for quadrotor simulation, this should work fine.

/edit: Unfortunately, it will probably be a week till we get to work on porting the stack to fuerte.

Thank you for the quick response! Unfortunately that means I'll have to get rid of 12.04 also....

You're right, that's of course quite a 'non-optimal' situation. We have two deadlines coming up next week, so it will take some more time till we get around to updating the stack.

roscpp was messing in manifest.xml for quad_rotor teleop (just trying to pitch in... this package was why I upgraded to fuerte.. )

Hello, Hope I am in correct post. I need to control a quadrotor in Gazebo. Is posible to use the new hector_quadrotor without ROS? I mean only with gazebo 1.x.x. thanks! Franco
