Quadcopters carring a rope

Post by kNo » 08 Mar 2018, 19:59


I need to simulate two (or more) quadrocopters carrying a rope. I have extended a string that I found in the forum and I have tried to connect the beginning of the string to one quadrocopter and another quadrocopter in the middle. The result is that the rope breaks where I try to join the second quadrocopter.
I attach the scene with which I am working.

Thank you,

first, to increase simulation speed, disable the wind particles in the script simulation parameters for both of the two quadcopters.

Next, you will have to look into creating a loop closure, something like:

quadCopter1 --> rope --> ropeLastShape --> dummy1
quadCopter2 --> jointOrForceSensor --> dummy2

and have both dummies correctly linked.

Hello Aitor,
I'm working on the same problem, more or less. I've tried to open your link but it's not working anymore. Would you mind to shared it again with me?
