    I have developed an algorithm in matlab to control the 3dr solo drone from PC. Is tit possible to control the drone from my matlab model. I would like to control the drone by certain commands like takeoff and return home. Could you please help me in interfacing my matlab model with 3 dr solo drone. Can I use wifi (UDP protocol) to give commands from matlab to solo drone

    I can't help with that but I'm wondering why you would want to control Solo from a PC?

    Mission Planner is a great (free) program that you can use to control your Solo. It will do about anything you can imagine.

    I'm not familiar with how Matlab is set up so can't give a step by step here.

    Here's a couple of suggestions instead:

    A virtual Solo using Gazebo
    takes a bit to set up but if you can get this running, you won't have to worry about crashing
    Gazebo Simulation ยท Firmware Devguide


    Running code on your real Solo or just a software version
    Use Drone-sitl. Very easy to set up and get you going.
    Quick Start

    By default it runs a software in the loop version. To run it on your real Solo, use the - - connect parameter or modify the script to point from 127.0.0.1 to your real Solo 10.1.1.10

    Hopefully will put you in the right direction.
