I was blown away at how stable the Inspire was using those sonic sensors
Very nice demo flight! I've been curious about adding optical flow/sonar sensors to a pixhawk setup, but it just seems a bit too expensive to me (costs the same as the HKhawk!):

Configuration and tuning seems involved enough that I may wait until I first get the pixhawk installed on an airframe first! This is why RTF's are so attractive, but then, you don't get to fiddle with all the bits!

Damn, that is a stable position hold.
You haven't seen the half of it. Just wait until you see FT's review of it.

Eric (who, BTW, is a hard-core DJI controler fan) kept saying "I really wanted to hate it , but . . . " and the footage shows every bit of it's performance . . . Or better said, the Inspire's footage hides every bit of what the airframe was doing . . . but I won't spoil their stories -- you gotta see it to beleive it :eek:
