Jamie Ahmed commented on Gerard Toonstra's blog post Arducopter code mods
"This sounds very interesting. However, how are you going to accurately track velocity? I'm thinking you need an optical flow sensor or something? If we could accurately track movement by integrating velocity then a very solid position hold w/o GPS…"
