Suffered a tragedy Now I need help

Hey fellow pilots or Otto Pilots, 

I almost lost my son in July, he was skateboarding hit his head-had a concussion and that night was literally out of his mind. He hid his pain from us because I would have ended his boarding career for not wearing a helmet. That nite he got into my pain meds for my back and not know what he was doing (remember he was in a concussed state) overdosed. He was NEXT to Death, but beat it and has come all the way back to where he started school yesterday.

Any way I have all the gear the autopilot board, the imu board the GPS the sonar a camera. I havent built the quad copter but I have a Rotor 404 quad with the same motor setup. 

I have been out of the loop for 8 weeks. I dont know where to START NOW!!! There is SO MUCH Data on this web site I dont know where to go to get info etc tec. I have soldered the IMU board to the autopilot board and hooked up the GPS but I have NO Idea now where to go next. Can someone point me in the right direction? PLEASE. I want to get back to this project and I have lost my way.. I would appreciate any help.


thanks so much.
