The position coordinates x, y, z are inadequate information to compute the roll pitch and yaw. x, y, and z are the position of the vehicle in space. roll, pitch, and yaw are the attitude or orientation. They can change independently. Aka you can change the orientation of the vehicle independently from the position of the vehicle.


Without knowing the specifics of the sensitivity of your magnetometer and electromagnet, it is impossible to give a concrete yes or no answer. With that, in general any source of magnetic field is likely to cause some disturbance in a magnetometer measurement. This includes internal sources, such as the electronics and motors on the drone, or external ...


It is not possible to calculate your roll - pitch - yaw angles from linear position information. If you are using a simulated robot with sensors, you can use the gyroscope readings from the IMU sensor, that way you are going to have the angular velocities in three axes. You can then integrate this readings to get angular position. However, because of the ...
