So laser printed boards require 2 transparencies to get enough darkness. After having many fine pitch boards come out bridged because the laser printouts on 2 transparencies never lined up, it became clear that the printer couldn't replicate the exact same size on 2 printouts.
After printing out a very long & narrow board, it became clear that the spacing was warped in the vertical direction, because the roller speed wasn't stable. Long & narrow boards have to be printed out with the long side facing sideways. The horizontal dimension was stable.
The next Marcy 2 prototype was a very long & narrow board.
It also became clear, after spending another full day laying out yet another prototype which has no application to a final product, it's going to cost $25,000 to bring this gadget to a final product & it's only expected to generate $2000 in revenue.
There's no way it's going to replace day jobs, which are damn rare. The cost of living needs to decrease or an investment bigger than $25,000 needs to be found, or a way to get blessed during soulmate hell needs to be found.

The average for tech projects is significantly higher than that. And so far all the RC aircraft projects (that I know of) have been successful with and average funding of around $35000 ($9000 was the lowest).
Check them out. Most of them with the exception of the Quadshot is significantly less ambitious than your project:
Failing that, would you consider releasing your code as open source?

If someone offered a job, I could provide more open source support. Everything has been released on heroinewarrior.com, but people need support & there's no day job to pay for it.
My research on kickstarter was documented here: http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/...arter-thoughts
