    Video: It doesn't say if Dual GPS was "only" used or in combo with optical flow and a lidar?
    If the latter, then the Video Demo is what i would expect it to be. If optical flow and a lidar wasn't on at the same time with Dual GPS, then "WOW WEE"
    Nice fine in anycase.....

    They were testing both
    But the GPS dual blend was shown in the picture. It works now in 3.4 but does not average or blend until 3.5
    That full blown lidar flow demo under the tree was crazy

    If Solo can do the "Under the Tree" successfully, then the FCC has to Pry it from my hands!

    Dual GPS is an advertised feature of Pixhawk 2.1.
    If you think the UBLOX M8N chips are scarce now just wait!

    I just put a Mro M8N on my Pixhawk 1 running 3.3.3 and what a difference. I bought the one that has the Honeywell Mag on it also.
