Hey OG, I was wondering if you were in Toronto these days, I'm trying really hard to make my quad fly with no success, everything works perfectly: GPS lock, xbee, radio modes, battery cells measurement, ESC calibration, compass, sonar.... I'm stuck at PID's, the copter takes off in a very sluggish way, no matter how I tweak the PID's I always end in a crash, so I thought I might as well pay someone for their time and save money on propellers. (Also save time in balancing them)

Please let me know if you are available. I am at Dufferin and Bloor, but if you want I can take all my gear to you. My phone number is 905 616 8482 (not long distance; Mississauga). As I said, I'm willing to pay for your time. All I want is to have the quad flying.

Please help me out!

whats weird is i was flying a gu344 gyro, which is a triaxial gyro, and it was flying ok, not as stable as I wanted but at least it would fly.

800 grams of payload is too little, I need to lift up a 4 pounds camera and fly at least 10 min. in the air.
