Just to be clear as to what this really means (and correct me if I am wrong): If you set a height and the XSP comes across a hill or object while flying the XSP will automatically adjust upward to avoid 'contact'... and then will drop down to original set height. If I am understanding this correctly, I would say this is as good or better than obstacle avoidance... of course assuming this works at higher speeds.
And also will track an object going up and down hills automatically.

Although this does work this is not what starpoint is designed for. Kenneth from Autel has posted this on the facebook page not to be using it for this reason. Go to fast and its game over.

Thanks for the quick replies and information. (I wonder how fast 'fast' is, to reach game over... but the warning is out there). I have not 'betad' myself but I sure look forward to the update. So much improvement.

I guess it's mainly for overall stability. I'm pretty sure I read that it helped when flying indoors where no GPS was available.

Nothing yet. Kenneth AR said in his last post last night on facebook it was ready to go and all that needed to be done was to have it uploaded to the server but I have been checking all day and nothing.

The only thing it addresses is the NFZ problems and a slightly slower landing speed by about 20%. I am guessing that is just auto landing that I never use anyways.

I noticed another thing about the sensors. When the drone is hovering, if you put you hand under the sensors and bring it closer to them the drone will rise to avoid your hand. That brings me to another question, are the obstacle avoidance sensors basically the same as these, or something different?
