Thanks guys! It is a real pleasure to fly. Or should I say to guide? It really can fly itself!

I just followed the wiki docs and got some help in the AQ forums. Having a working/good chassis to plop the AQ brain into helped. I had some issues with calibration logs/analysis, which are being examined/worked on by the team, but got through that. Definitely a learning process! For me, it was fun. But I'm not easily frustrated by technology (computers and programming are my "thing").

The Frankenradio is an older Multiplex Evo 9 modified with an FrSky Tx module (the JR version) and their telemetry display. Rx is an FrSky D8R-XP with a Futaba S.Bus adapter (SBE-1) and home-made signal inverter. I'm not using PPM output for a couple of reasons related to camera control, but that would also be an option instead of the (relatively expensive) SBE-1.
