Hi Simon,

OK, thanks. I got it now. I wasn't aware that this device was an AHRS of
its own. At first, I thought this was just an older IMU in a bulky kind
of casing.

The xsens700 MTI-G with GPS is actually a full INS (so including full position and velocity).
I wonder if the performance is really much better than the AHRS systems
in Paparazzi. So far I never found a reason to use anything else for my
fixed wing.

While I don't have any experience/data with/from it, I presume it is better than using only an AHRS algorithm.
With a full INS you can always get better performance since you need to make less assumptions...
But I'm glad that you seem to be happy with the AHRS algos we implemented.

Cheers, Felix
