Hi, this is a theoretical question about IR.bogus (not something I
actually foresee needing).
If both IMU and IR hardware were present, would it be possible to
switch between IMU / IR stabilization based on IR.bogus? i.e. when the
horizon was visible, use IR to stabilize (otherwise fall back to IMU).
I think this would only make sense if the IMU was reset during
IR-stabilized flight (if that is even sensible). For example, a
high-vibration takeoff ("IMU.bogus=true"), followed some time later by
a cruse through heavy cloud (IR.bogus=true).
