Discussions about software development ranging from flight code to obstacle avoidance. Please focus on software development and do not ask integration questions here (configuration or airframes).
Configuration and Flight Modes
This category is about the initial configuration with QGroundControl and Flight mode setup (for multicopters, VTOL and planes).
Please discuss flight controllers (Pixhawk, Pixracer, Snapdragon Flight) here.
Discussions about multicopters.
Discussion about this site, its organization, how it works, and how we can improve it.
This is the <a href="http://qgroundcontrol.com/">QGroundControl</a> parent category. Where possible you should create questions in the following sub-categories:
The discussions here should <em>exclusively</em> about flight results and logs. Please try to use the <a href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OM2KR0DWcACsFUZEY7mwUwkruNgfacCKS3ELrtk-pB4/edit?usp=sharing">standard approach</a> for flight tests and reporting.
Weekly Dev Call
Agenda and minutes for the weekly dev call. Only the calls themselves should be discussed here and in-depth discussions should be put into the appropriateness categories.
Discussions on Vertical Takeoff and Landing vehicles.
This category is intended to discuss computer vision onboard of autonomous drones. This includes vision enabled navigation (including VIO and SLAM) as well as obstacle avoidance and machine learning.
This category is for conversations about <a href="https://www.dronecode.org/">Dronecode</a>, including platform-level technical and <a href="https://www.dronecode.org/technical-steering-committee/">Technical Steering Group (TSC)</a> discussions.
Discussions on traditional airplanes and flying wings - anything that is not a multicopter or VTOL.
The <a href="https://www.dronecode.org/sdk/">Dronecode SDK</a> is a MAVLink Library for PX4, with APIs for C++, Python, Android, and iOS (coming soon). This category is for questions about how to write SDK apps and contribute to/develop the library.
German User Forum
Forum für deutsche User / This is the german users forum.
We cover Consumer Drones, Commercial Drones (e.g. a DSLR-carrying large multicopter) and Industrial Drones (inspection, cargo, high reliability). This category should be used for any industrial drone specific use.
