Hello everyone. long story short, im trying to create my own flight controller for a project and testing has been a pain. im wondering, is there a simulation out there that i can give Arduino code and quad copter specification to see how the quad would generally behave? it would really be a life saver.
Negative on that one. There are programs like fusion 360 or onshape or solidworks (CAD in general) that have add ons or plugins that can run simulations for stress and maybe aerodynamic flow but not really dynamic flight and nothing that emulates Arduino code for that purpose (Arduino is really C++ with some libraries and presets and tool that helps compile and upload the machine/mcu executable code). New Microsoft flight simulator looks awesome btw but sort of off topic . Real world testing needs to be done think the electronoobs setup with balancing just one axis first is the way to go about this the rig will take some time (hr maybe) to setup but can keep things relatively safely bolted down while testing code.
