Building a fixed wing long range mapper. Curious what the Pixhawk 2 will bring? Support for multiple camera systems, basic on-board processing, running dual GNSS? Any confirmed dates for release?

@Fnoop Dogg,

That is just the FCU removed from its carrier board. It is a very compact flight controller by itself, but is about the same size as a PH1 when attached to its carrier board.
