    This video shows collision avoidance working VERY WELL.
    The last 3 instances show it working at high speed

    Isn't Collision Avoidance disabled in "S" mode?

    Pretty neat.
    In "#8" you can see him trying to give it full forward pitch into the hill (notice he's in controller mode 1). And it refuses to commit dronicide.

    How come in the last scene he has the left control all the way forward and the bird isn't rising?

    His controller is mode 1! Not the far more common mode 2. It's full forward pitch.

    If it was autonomously "headed somewhere", like the home point during an RTH, it should find a way around the obstacle and continue. In this video, all we see is manual control.

    Correct, in order to see how it works in the RTH mode, someone would have to fly behind a building, with the the RTH altitude set below the height of the building, and RTH.
    ANY TAKERS ?? --- ha ha ha !!
    OR
    Watch this video

    Forward ascend & facing tree branches will be the ultimate test of this feature .

    It is very cool. Just appreciate the limits. You can't be flat out. And don't expect much from sparsely populated tree branches and power lines.
