Thanks.

The elevator is fixed at an angle with hot glue. No gyro input on it yet. Just motor tilt for pitch control.

Doing some looking around. I came across a forum about bicopters and in particular this thread about gyroscopic control. Good stuff.

It is a tilt rotor, just not the full 90 degrees, that will come with version II.

That is a very nice looking hybrid quadcopter though and may be the solution for someone that needs the extra stability at the minimal cost of the extra motors and power consumption.

For me though it's the challenge of finding new ways to make a bicopter stable without using more motors.
