VTOL control and airspeed fault detection
Discussion of work that has been going on around VTOL during the last year:
- rate controller architecture change
- weathervane
- tailsitter transition improvements (Xvert)

Airspeed fault detection:

- airspeed module which detects airspeed faults and generates a "best" airspeed
estimate to be used by controllers"
