This reads very much like quad throttle management on a manual flip/roll: reduce throttle when inverted, increase throttle when not inverted.
My 3 guesses as on why this might have been mentioned:
1. The Q Bot micro is capable of manual flips.
2. The auto flips could use some flip throttle management to help it along (though in the video, the flip occurred too fast for me to do any throttle management).
3. It is not needed (autoflip handles this) and Hobby King/Turnigy did a bad job of editing directions for a flip/roll.
I'll see for sure - ordered one - as I write it gets packed
I'll be glad if you are right and it offers manual flips, but I do not count on it.
The chinglish manual is less than useless as usual. You wouldn't recognise the difference if they would print that on the back of a pack of instant noodles...
