Quad flight #1

The quad rotor finally got in the air. Not enough power to control altitude. Cyclic oscillation in the dumpy apartment is the same as in the air. A few seconds in the air with that oscillation & the IMU drifts too much, U start going sideways faster & faster out of control, flip, & engine shutdown. Looks like better propellers R a start.

Higher cyclic gains may reduce oscillations, but these R prone to flipping without more kludges.

Quad tests (0 min 56 sec)
