She flies again

So there were many comments in the config file where changes were required for POV & the takeoff algorithm was different than expected. The takeoff is the hardest thing for an autopilot. Sadly, this 4100kv motor is too hot & needs to be replaced by a 3600 to fly the complete program last flown in 2012. 3600kv 12mm motors are no longer made. They have to be wound from scratch.

Takeoff got converted to hard coded, somewhere after 2012. It may have been a sacrifice for ambient light. Then, there was the forgotten matter of battery balancing. Since there was only 1 copter in 2012 which always had POV, there was no dual configuration.
