Well it will always be announced at http://forums.openpilot.org/ before anywhere else so best watch there. Will look at adding something like you suggest right now, at http://www.flyingrobots.co.uk although soon there will be no stock issues anywhere and this issue will be a thing of the past.

Jeff, I might have some serial cables around, you will need a bluetooth board as well.

You don't have to have a bluetooth setup, it does not do anymore than the USB cable.

ok this happen to me once, and also make sure your motors and props are all on the right motor alignment ie 1 front 2 right etc...
also you need the bootloader updated before the firmware correct?
i did update FW twice to eliminate a similar issue but im sure it was the process on how i updated. ie 3am half asleep lol

Could the CopterControl be used to stabilize a standard CCPM heli? Not flybarless. I was thinking it would be nice to have a self-leveling heli to use as a trainer... would the existing programming work?

Yep. I've been using it on my CCPM as a tail heading lock. I haven't tried self leveling yet, but I've been making changes to stabilization to make it work well.
