Q.1 : adding namespaces to microdds_clients

Q.2: Flash overflowing, how do we fix this? - Jay

For example in this PR: Add fixed wing rate control module by Jaeyoung-Lim · Pull Request #20237 · PX4/PX4-Autopilot · GitHub

Q.3: Pixhawk 6C not receiving RC data

Q.4: HITL Fixed wing takeoff not working

  • Probably because the actuator output mapping isn’t correct between the PX4 and Simulation
  • Probably not supported now.

There is a hanging PR to support HITL with jMAVSim, but it isn’t done yet.

P.1 : Arbitrary Mag orientation feature - Junwoo

Before sensors: prefix mag config param SENS instead of CAL by bresch · Pull Request #20723 · PX4/PX4-Autopilot · GitHub goes in, shouldn’t we get this in first? @bresch
