Honestly the GCS update rate is mediocre.
The rest is interesting, looks like Picopilot concept with full IMU.
Or is it a JokePilot?

Reminds us of 3D animated graphics on the Commodore 64. Just a wireframe cube was a miracle in those days.

I am sorry for that. The post was published April 1st.
After reading some news you cannot believe on all the info.
But truly, this is an advancement in amateur grade autopilots.
The refresh rate IS unbelieveably slow on the display and yes this causes some natural questions:
why did they chose to put unfinished features if you could live without them?
I was almost sure you really mixed up videos from a few different products...

Hooks, you're farther along than I am! Great Job, and refinement is the name of the game. When I write a job for the "enterprise" I just have to show it off to a few administrators, just cause it's cool {cool is subjective}, even if it's not done.

Looking forward to seeing an update! - regards bcd

No Problem! Bosak You are totally right about the refresh rate.. But do you need better rate and Why?

@Brian Don't give me credit for this.. I'm just sending out info on the system.

Remember to turn on your speakers! hehe wife was sleepy...

"But do you need better rate and Why?"
Because if you want to check if the IMU works in the air, you really need some 16Hz refresh rate, or more. It is hard to tell IMU lag coming from filtering etc. Therefore such low Hz display is telling.. I don't know what. That up is up when you are on the ground.
