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!

Thank you very much!

This controller will stay as is. Maybe one day a new controller with all the gadgets!
