Arducopter 3.X PID settings

Hey Guys

I would like to properly document the individual PID settings on the latest code, with a "plain English" explanation of what each parameter does. Partly for my own education (To be able to support the ones I sell), and to perhaps make a WIKI document for others to work from.

Is anyone willing to help me understand them? No guessers please, I need people in the know.

I have a basic understanding, and have tuned a few copters in my day, but I have SO many questions.

I may even decide to make a few howto videos and post them once I have a firmer grasp on things.

Thanx in advance

"BiCopter center of gravity.
I saw a code came out for Bicopter.
How far can the center of gravity of the BiCpter VTOL QuadPlane motors line can be?"
