Shanghai strikes again

Good news: VicaCopter did not crash because of software flybar. She was very hard to fly, but the crash was caused by another servo burnout. The servo under the port flag, 2 B exact. Jack Crossfire noted it felt like a servo went dead before the crash. A miracle he could auto it in with only broken skids & keep those precious flags untouched. 35 hours to burn out. Not bad.

Throttle of 0.6 is required to begin to get any autorotation with the payload.

Upgraded the PIC to take some configuration from the ARM. It doesn't enable the servos until configuration is loaded. Also, there's enough room in the protocol to send 4kbytes of configuration to the PIC.

The next great programming language is one that reduces from a reasonably sized standard all the way down directly to microcode without an interpreter. Java standards are bit too bloated. C++ could have a lot of Java features without sacrificing performance. There must be something somewhere between Java & C++ which is optimized for speed.
