1/2 Ground Based Autopilot 4 U

Originally VikaCopter had a small integral on the airframe to give her some heading stability. When rate feedback went to 200Hz, that went away.

Face it, ground based autopilot is no match for the copters with 200Hz onboard feedback. U only thought 50Hz was enough because used 25Hz. Given the need to fly in smaller spaces, maybe it's time to put orientation feedback back on the airframe.

The cheapest method is to stick with ground based autopilot & implement heading hold for all the gyros. While U debate that, how about another photo run.
