Sensirion announced today (28 August 2017) the integration of a revolutionary new airspeed sensor into PX4. The SDP3x-series sensor allows you to get your VTOL aircraft into the air faster, and transition from hover to forward flight more safely.
Unlike other airspeed sensors, the SPD3x series do not require calibration before use and offer high accuracy and sensitivity even at low airspeeds. When used in VTOL aircraft, users can instantly launch the drone (without need for a calibration process) and transition between hovering and forward flight much more safely.
