We thought about controlling it with an APM but we weren't allowed even a tiny battery to run servos & computers... generators were too heavy. The control system ended up being real intuitive - lean left, go left. Todd's weight was enough to deflect the structure and we were able to vector thrust to get around.
Sort of sucks for Gamera, but like John Carmack losing the lunar challenge, that's the price of giving out all your techniques. Gamera was uploading a lot of videos 2 years ago & heavily promoted on Gizmodo, while Atlas was mostly secret. Only 1 team gets the prize.
