"An M7 couldn't hurt, and maybe it will happen. But while vision tasks on an microcontroller  like OpenMV can always benefit from more power,  current Pixhawk MCs have plenty of processing power for conventional flight…"

No Parachute? No problem! (There’s an app for that)

In which a 1.7m flying wing VTOL transitions to forward flight with ... oops ... reversed elevons. As the transition starts the quad motors are active and compensate for the reversed elevons. Once the transition is completed the quad motors stop and ... the flying wing, now flying like a plane, flips 180 degrees quasi instantly…See More

"The way I see it having support for different flight profiles is definitely something that is required for stall recovery, since it could be considered a 3rd way of 'flying' the plane with totally different characteristics."

Hi Olivier,

You can use it of course. Just let me know which one you like best and I'll find the high resolution original for editing or cleaning up. Except for a very few of them which were shot by a pro friend of mine, I usually take all the pictures of our gear, but I'm not a professional photographer, so you need some processing on them, surely... :-)
