XTDrone is a customizable Multi-Rotor UAVs simulation platform based on PX4 and ROS. Now the simulator of XTDrone is Gazebo, and the connection to Airsim is being developed. XTDrone supports mulitrotors (including quadrotors and hexarotors), fixed wings, VTOLs (including quadplanes, tailsitters and tiltrotors) and rovers. It's convenient to deploy the algorithm to real UAVs after testing and debugging on the simulation platform.
Architecture for single vehicle simulation is shown as the below figure. For more details, see the paper
