Hi all! Im actually building a quadcopter (accelerometer+gyroscopemotor+props+esc...) I would like to develop my own flight controller.

Just discovered Gazebo. Do you think Gazebo could be interesting to develop and test a flight controller? (Dont wanna use much time creating 3d models, etc...)

You can take a look at hector_quadrotor. It uses ROS and not pure Gazebo, but implements everything you need for flying a quadrotor in Gazebo. This means you could re-write parts of all of the controller and experiment with it. You could also strip out the ROS parts if you like.

Hello. Are there any details about the mapping between the PWM values and RPMs for the propellers? This seems relevant for the (non-Twist) flight controllers.
