They were having quite a few orientation problems. Gonna need a real light body on it that can help with that.

Here's a build thread for a similar quad for those interested. The quad gets smaller and smaller in the thread.

in theroy its not that hard, but the devil is in the details. a 2 axis gyro is about 10 dls on digikey, puts out a refrence voltage, anthing above is roll left, anything below is roll right.
havent tryed them out yet, too many projects.

Wow! A 3-axis accelerometer AND two gyros! I guess it should be pretty stable, lol! I actually made a quad about that size with a Walkera UFO #8 board and battery and 6mm Air Hogs motors and props. I was never able to make a good, light weight frame though. Perhaps I'll start working on it again.
