optical flow hovering

Optical flow Syma X1 (1 min 21 sec)

There it is. What made it stable enough was discarding the accelerometer & letting the gyros free roll except for heading. There's a real problem in the fixed point blending code. For now, a large integral with just the right gain keeps up with the drift, as always.

The problem went back to optical flow slippage. It's not good enough to fly to a waypoint. There's not enough computing power to track a single object.

The motors get flaming hot in 1 minute, so there's not a problem with the gyros drifting after 2 minutes.
