QGroundControl to Mission Planner conversion script

    If you have a parameter dump from QGroundControl, I wrote a small script that will convert it to a Mission Planner compatible file. You can also use Parachute to do your backups/restores/conversions.

    Just save this script somewhere as convert_qgc_params and run it as ./convert_qgc_params <qgc params> <output file>:

    #!/usr/bin/env python3
    import sys
    from decimal import Decimal
    def format_float(f):
        return "{0:f}".format(Decimal(f).quantize(Decimal("1.0000000")).normalize())
    def main(infile, outfile):
        with open(infile) as ins:
            inputs = ins.read()
        lines = []
        for line in inputs.split("\n"):
            if not line or line.startswith("#"):
            vehicle_id, component_id, name, value, type = line.split("\t")
            v = value
            if type == "9":
                v = format_float(float(value))
        with open(outfile, "wt") as outs:
    if __name__ == "__main__":
        main(sys.argv[1], sys.argv[2])
