we are still missing a JSBSim model for a quadrotor in X configuration (like the ARDrone2).
It was my fault that I accidentally added the "simple_quad" as NPS_JSBSIM_MODEL to the ardrone2_raw.xml file.
And since the actuator names don't match nothing happens.
(top_left doesn't exist in the simple_quad.xml
, and rightly so since that is for a + configuration)
I removed the line in ardrone2_raw specifying the model, since it is wrong and can not work.
Now you will get an error starting the NPS sim (JSBSim failed to open the configuration file: foo/paparazzi/conf/simulator/jsbsim/aircraft/ardrone2_raw.xml).
But IMHO that is better than NPS just not working for no obvious reason.
In the end you need to either provide a correct JSBSim file with the name of the aircraft, or set one explicitly via NPS_JSBSIM_MODEL.
So, if anyone already has a JSBSim model for a quad in X configuration (or has the time to make a working one) it would be great to finally add one.
