Will you update this?

Also building from their git directly. If anyone has trouble with libusb-1.0 when building gcs (may or not be related to my libusb-nosystemd) just comment out the PKGCONFIG line in: ground/gcs/src/plugins/ophid/ and the build continues. I don't know how to add /usr/include/libusb-1.0/ as an include directly cleanly, but in extremis you can just link libusb.h into ground/gcs/src/plugins/ophid/inc/ It compiles, however there are libusb warnings about loading plugins on startup, more news soon.

There's a new release 16.09, but it still doesn't build due to a completely different compilation error than the one in this version. What I did manage to build, however, was their standard 'next' branch from Git. I just did a local build by following the (ArchLinux-specific) instructions here: (Haven't made any packaging attempts.) I plugged in my HiSky HMX280 and flashed it using that 'next' build. And it flies. \o/ \o/ \o/ There were a few funny glitches though, for example, all the settings got wiped out although I hadn't selected the most aggressive flashing option. So the aircraft completely forgot that it had motors and I had to configure them again (ports, ESC types, all that). Also the PID settings got weird -- both the backed-up ones I had as well as the default ones made the quadcopter wobble in hover. But now it's fine after a bit of quick "tuning", --P and ++I basically, the classics. :-D Just thought I'd leave behind a word of caution for someone who decides to update an aircraft with a dated firmware in it. :-)

@andrej Yes it requires an older version of Qt to build. The prebuilt version here should work though

This doesn't build on my system. :-( Does it require an older Qt version or something like that? I can see two instances of this error message: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-andrej/aur-librepilot/src/LibrePilot/ground/gcs/src/plugins/uavsettingsimportexport/importsummary.cpp:83:70: error: no matching function for call to ‘QTableWidgetItem::setFlags(bool)’ ui->importSummaryList->item(row, 2)->setFlags(!Qt::ItemIsEditable);
