It's doesn't make the 3D with GPS or hard deck claims that the Skookum claims to be capable of, but it has full 3D FBL capability in manual mode and a built in accelerometers, magnetometer and barometric sensor for self leveling and attitude hold and then you can add the additional GPS feature to lock the helis coordinates further within a 2.7 foot area even in wind. This may be all guys like me who just fly big air, but would like a GPS assisted bailout or scale flying style or photography assist and don't need all of the promised yet never delivered Skookum stuff.

Its half the cost of the Align GPS setup at $440 for both components and best of all..........the product actually exists!!!!!

Looks like Skookum has waited too long and will have to lower the initial price or sales will be zero. I would pay $169 for a Skookum GPS upgrade but no way that I will pay anything close to $1000.
