    On your canyon problem. You could do two things:

    FPV with manual control as Chris mentioned.

    Use three Sonar: 1 point down(currently supported), and two angled horizontally, pointing 45° forward (front/left and front/right). You will need to add some basic collision avoidance code, but that’s pretty trivial.
