Video assist

So making the receiever not touch the ESC resolved the communication problems. Bitrates are now in the 3kbit range because 2 bytes per packet were added for user data. Longer packets with no FEC mean more data is lost with each error.

A throggle bug persists, where after shutting down the motor by powering down the transmitter, the motor spins up when the transmitter is powered up again, regardless of stick position.

In today's flight, the software tail stabilizer unintentionally used absolute yaw instead of rate, not a good situation. Jack Crossfire is such a good pilot that he managed to overcome the sudden losses of yaw control and make it look like it was working. Yet another of many glitches plaging these return to flight missions.

So in the first video assist flight, there was no correlation between accelerometer output and pitch. Managed to get correlation between video & pitch integral but had no mechanism synchronize the video with the flight recording. This video was hand keyframed.
