For hobby FPV, the whole point of flying a drone instead of using a simulation…"
"@Dmitriy, I'm not sure I understand your comments on dual frequency GPS systems having a faster initialisation times, or comparable accuracy to single frequency systems for PPP solutions.
For dual frequency commercial units (L1/L2) from…"
