Lightning Fast Control? Need Help

Would the ArduPilot be fast enough for developing the following application?

How would I find someone to help me develop a system to measure the initial forces on a world-class model hydroplane (110-150mph)and then be able to develop an instantaneous inertial guidance system to avoid catastrophic flips and rolls (that happen faster than human reaction time)?

Any ideas where I could I find a design engineer for such a project?

  • At 150mph, the hydroplane is moving at 220 feet per second or 2.2 feet every 1/100th of second!  Is the ArduPilot fast enough to read the gyro / accelorameter, microprocess, and send servo commands!!!
