I spent yesterday "string tuning" my Quadnid and all went well except
for one glitch where it wanted to pitch & roll to down/left with SL off.
Control input was almost non existent to get it back level. Once level
I switched on SL and it tried to pitch to inverted. Went to SAFE then
back ARMED and it was doing the same thing. I shut it down and got
another battery and all was well.

I flew 4 batteries today and it flew very well w/SL off & on.

I ran out of HK 9x5 props so I tuned with GF 10x4.7s.
I'm not sure if this is the reason my run times have gone down.
I'll have to get some more 9x5s and see what happens.

In the mean time, I was wondering if there is any correlation of
power usage with high gains as opposed to lower gains.
If so, what would be an estimate in percentage?
