Post ground station sotware
Hi guys,

counting down hours for my Expresso :) .
I have a question about the ground station for the expresso telemetry.
Can you tell me where can it be downloaded from, how to install it and use it?

Thanks,

David

Hey David,

we're working on a tutorial for our wiki on doing this - we'll put it up ASAP. For now, the first step is to install Paparazzi:

A good second step is to run a simulated UAV so you can get some experience running the ground station and using the interface:

The last thing is to check out the Quadshot-specific software branch of Paparazzi from github, so that the groundstation correctly interprets the telemetry messages coming from Lisa/Lia over the xBee link. We'll cover that in detail in the wiki article.

Cheers,
//Jeff
