"Excellent stuff. I want to go ahead but I am not much of an arduino programmer guy. Do you think that singlecopter and coaxcopter firmwares will be available from MP anytime soon ? Thank you"

"As of last check in, Roll is Servo 1, Pitch is Servo 2, motors 3&4. I had them as per WIKI, Randy changed them around, didn't care one way or the other, so I went with his layout :)   Anyone else flying with this, suggest Stab Yaw P,…"
