Great job Al.

Will you be doing videos on setting up altitude hold, auto level and setting up the camera pitch and roll compensation.

Also would like to see a video on what a machine looks like with too high a gain setting. I think that would help a beginner tremendously.

many thanks

Would you be able to put together a camera tutorial, showing the various ways that camera mounts can be controlled via HFP? ...fine tuning of camera parameters, extra.

Perhaps another on tips for achieving stable flight.

I have a Spectrum DX6, and all the info I find says to put the radio in AC Mode. Unfortunately, in this mode the Elevator and Aileron are hopelessly tied together. So I switched mode to HELI, and set it up Not as a CCP, and everything seems to work properly.

My ELE, AIL, THR, RUD, are all set to 150% +/- and the GER is set to 25% +/-

Everything seems to work that way, but Not in Aircraft mode.

I tested the Spectrum, and it failed miserably. I guess the DX6 will not work on this copter

Did you have elevon mixing turned on when it was in ACRO mode? Its not right if Ailerons and Elevator are mixed together unless there is a form of mixing activated. In the case mixing Ailerons and Elevator that would be Elevon Mixing like for a flying wing.
