Wind terrorism

Not naming any countries, but with high winds expected until November, the focus is now improved altitude hold with manual position hold. Finally broke down and implemented a cyclic -> target attitude function. The cyclic controls the target attitude instead of the servos.

Holy shoot that's hard 2 fly. This provides enourmous stabilization for video in high wind but with the delay and lack of deflection, it's a miracle the computer can fly at all. The effect of wind hitting under the blades is now known. Wind hitting under the blades fools the accelerometer into thinking she's less level than she is and steepens the angle of attack away from the wind.

In wind, the neural network is pretty worthless.
