It was revealed in the last 24 hours, which is good news for Pixhawk owners that the Arducopter code is going to support redundant IMU (the hardware is present in the Pixhawk already), one downside is that existing APM owners won't get this feature as the hardware doesn't support it. Although there's GPS glitch protection in the software already, as an extra safeguard the development is moving towards dual GPS hardware support too.

It's good to see a range of high end redundancy features being made available at a consumer price point.
