For the flight control, you have many options, especially on integrated boards. I suggest a plain support-board where you can place an arduino and the sensors you want. With an integrated board, you should can add other sensors, but you have to carry the unused ones always with you. Check the main site to start with:
That looks like a good option, thanks.

I might try some different options, just for the sake of doing it..after all, there is supposed to be some research involved so I'll try out different arm types, props, things like that and note which works best ( and write a smart sounding report as to why, instead of simply stating that some materials dampen vibrations better than others)
