I'm getting started into Tower and dronekit development, first by setting up a convenient development environment. I'm thinking of using some Android VM and SITL/HIL. Then I could use Wireshark on rely on Mavlink logs to debug the communication. Any suggestions?

@Jack-2025 the Tower wiki provides some instructions to help with setup. Of special interest is the instructions to setup a custom version of Tower and 3DR Services.
For android VM, genymotion is a good candidate, although I haven't been using for a while, and just use an android device for development.
If you use an android vm, you might need to use the TCP connection to connect to SITL.
