Man this thing is STABLE!!

Just did about 20 minutes worth of flying, on 3 packs....I can't tell you how well this thing is flying....VERY stable.

Kapteinkuk, if you ever integrate an accelerometer or GPS in your code, this will be the most stable Quad design on rcgroups!

On a 2500 LiPO, 35C pack (Rhino, from hobbyking) I can easily get a 5 ++ minute flight. I land early, cause I do not have an alarm on it yet, and the battery still has about 300-400ma lefts when I charge it again...very happy with the motors, and props so far.

I did some final trimming today with the TX, and I can easily hover this thing almost hands off...obviously, I need to keep on the throttle (but that is why we need GPS!! :-) )

Rolf, again THANK YOU SO MUCH for your code!! You wrote a VERY GOOD set instructions for the Atmel chip, and it is doing an EXCELLENT job at flying my quad!

I will have more video soon for you all....need to convince the wife again to take it!
