Hello Everyone,
I saw this tutorial:

Are there any tutorials or has anyone gotten Neuro Flight installed and running?
Does it work with Ubuntu 18.04?
Thanks for any help!

works ok with wubuntu18.04 - just follow the steps provided on the git repo, it is not that difficult. Make sure you have python3 installed before starting (recommend the latest, at this moment 3.7.2)

looking forward for some extra info on the whole setup....for the moment it seems that one has to build his model first...not sure that the Iris/example can be used for a racing/freestyle drone :)

You have to add the current model into the gazebo directory.. Everything is already there for you to start like i have.

Hello,

Were you able to setup gymfc/neuroflight with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS? I am having a difficult time with the setup... if anyone can help it would be awesome!

A few questions for the steps to provided in the repo:

Step 2 - Compile and install Gazebo
Can we use any version of Gazebo? For some reason I am having a hard time installing Gazebo9 in my Ubuntu 18.08 LTS system. Everytime I try to install it from source I get compiling errors...

Step 3 - From root directory of this project, pip3 install . If you plan to work with the GymFC source code you will want to install it in development mode, pip3 install -e . You will also need to build the plugin manually by running the script gymfc/envs/assets/gazebo/plugins/build_plugin.sh.
I tried many times and I just can't get this to work...
when building the plugin manually by running the build_plugin.sh script, I keep getting a 'fatal error' about the DARTmodel.hh file not found...

4)Confirm SetupFile in gymfc.ini is pointing to the correct location
I am not sure about this step.. what exactly we should be looking for?

Thank you very much for any input. I am new to the AI/RL environment, and I am trying to perform research on neuro flight controller which I think that starting with gymfc as the baseline would be great.

By the way, a step by step tutorial on gymfc and its dependencies download/installation/compilation would be great! I am sure many students/researchers like myself would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you again.
