PX4 stable release v1.10.2

@LorenzMeier LorenzMeier released this Jan 21, 2020 · 2045 commits to master since this release

This point release reduces the CPU load on FMUv2/v3 targets by setting the default rate control loop executing speed to 400 Hz. The v1.10 release increases the default rate control speed from 250 Hz (v1.9 and before) to 1000 Hz (v1.10), which not all boards can sustain in terms of CPU speed.
