The pyro node now has a single axis accelerometers and a pressure
sensor, in order to be completely FC-independent if need be. So there is
some data to be had here.

But if we do have a backchannel between the GPS and the pyro node, we
could broadcast the GPS location, that's a pretty darn good point.

I have to agree with Sarah! :)
