LegendLength commented on Tommy Larsen's blog post Full size Y6 Air-Scooter
"There seem to be a lot of people laughing at the idea of full sized multirotors.  IMO they offer large advantages and can overcome all the main criticisms in this thread:

When I slowly ramp my quad up to full throttle i can just have it there maxed and it doesn't take off.  But then I reduce throttle to zero for a few seconds and it takes off fine after giving it throttle again.Is this a setting somewhere or could it…
