Hero 9 for telemetry
[ Edited ]

Hey everyone,

I have briefly been testing the telemetry capabilities of the HERO9. The first difference I see with the HERO8 is the addition of two metadata streams: MRV Frame Skip and LRV Frame Skip.

On the GPS front, my unit seems slightly worse than my Hero 8, in terms of accuracy and reliabiliy. The weather was overcast so maybe that played a role, but I've had many instances where the GPS path went nuts. It seems to acquire a lock (bright white GPS icon) much more easily than the 8, they might have changed some thresholds there.

Has anyone had different results? It might just be my unit, which also has the widespread touchscreen unresponsiveness issue, so I might need to have it replaced.
