Through patience and persistence, finally got myself an Openpilot CC3D board
to replace the cobbled together KK board + FY30A stabilizer. That combo
actually worked pretty well, but the CC3D board is in a league of its own.

It's allowed me to really explore the limits of this beater airframe.

One thing I added was another anti-vibe mount for the controller itself. Using thin
ply, and 4 earplug halves, with notches in their sides to reduce the amount of foam
for the lighter weight board. It helps me cut some vibes the board was seeing.
Had to tape the servo wires down so they wouldn't blow in the wind, and yank the
board around. May put a plastic cover over the whole area too.

Couple vids showing what it's capable of, and I'm still just getting comfortable with it.
