QGroundControl Quick Start

Getting QGroundControl up and running is quick and easy:

  1. Download and install the application.
  2. Start QGroundControl.
  3. Attach your vehicle to the ground station device via USB, through a telemetry radio, or over WiFi. QGroundControl should detect your vehicle and connect to it automatically.

That's it! If the vehicle is ready to fly, QGroundControl should display Fly View as shown below (otherwise it will open Setup View).

A good way to become familiar with QGroundControl is to start experimenting:

  • Use the toolbar to switch between the main views:
    • Settings: Configure the QGroundControl application.
    • Setup: Configure and tune your vehicle.
    • Plan: Create autonomous missions.
    • Fly: Monitor you vehicle(s) while flying, including streaming video.
  • Click the Status icons on the toolbar to find out the status of the connected vehicle.

While the UI is fairly intuitive, this documentation can also be referenced to find out more.
