You are suggesting eliminate the gps on the drone, that`s dificult, but very interesting i will follow this discussion

Yes, it’s possible to fly without the compass. Plane will use GPS track to determine direction in which plane is going. Although it may be tricky in strong winds when plane will drift significantly and then GPS track will not match plane heading because of the wind drift.
