I just got up and running with a new Quadshot featuring a Paparazzi Lia. I was wondering if any more conversations had been had about transitional flight with APM? Some OpenPilot folks have had some success and I believe multiWii has as well, has anyone here? I've not seen much beyond a few preliminary conversations around the difficulty.

Here is a video of one of my first hover attempts.

    It's a lot of fun to fly.

    I have not seen anybody with a transitioning platform here. You have probably found out it's amusing! For one platform we suspended a control board in a cradle that allowed it to tip that sort of worked. That Quadshot looked the best about in all the videos I have seen.
