Those who don’t know WSL 2 runs in a virtual machine which causes PX4 and Windows Host to have different IP addresses, so they can’t share localhost anymore.

This video is showing off a brand new feature of PX4 SITL mode, namely, the ability for PX4 SITL to connect to a remote simulator (AirSim in this case). This also means you could have PX4 running on a Raspberry Pi talking to AirSim on your Windows machine.
