    Hey guys,

    Byron and I will be at what will probably become known at DIY Melbourne Central (you'll see why when you get there) [see post below] tomorrow from 08:30.

    There will be some autonomous flight [take off and landing], super stable loiter mode and speed / weight tests.

    Questions to be answered on the day include: 

    * why won't this bloody thing stay in one spot

    * how fast can a quad with 11inch props and 880kv motors fly

    * how much can it carry before it can't lift off.

    Be there, or be somewhere else - probably sleeping. (;
