For the 9th flight over Mars, I collected better images from the
surface. To understand what I'm computing, here is another work
from mine...

You can see a cursor pointing at Ingenuity's localization, moving on
the map, following the helicopter's motion. What I would like to do, is
to compute this in space, with "translate <Tx, Ty, Tz>" in 3 dimensions.

I could also "rotate <Rx, Ry, Rz>" and "shear <Sx, Sy, 0>" but it is not
working for the moment. And I rendered this with Persistence Of Vision.
The algorithm I'm using is probably close to what is used on Mars,
because it is constructed to avoid the drift from the embedded IMU.
It's not viewed from the top (like (1)) but from the surface of Mars.

Best regards,
