Here's a fun competition between a KK navboard quad and one flying the Ardupirates version of the ArduCopter code. They're set to the same GPS position hold target and then, well, watch the video....Very dramatic ending!

That sort of puts me in mind of when Dean was testing how accurate his circles were. Take one fast plane and one slow one...

But the KK was flying in X and the ACP was flying in +.  We all know that X is better than +.

Put shrouds on and really battle it out!

Do both use same GPS unit?

I believe KK is Ublox 6 so no.

It shows how bad the standard GPS + barometer package is at actually determining position.  Nothing better has emerged in years.
