Serves me right for calling it the "ArduCopter Calibration Dance" ;-)

I threw together a little video for the manual showing how I calibrate the magnetometer in the ArduCopter setup. And then YouTube user cylllka put it to music. Catchy! If I had known I'd be making a music video, I would have dressed better ;-)

Good thing I didn't shoot the video.  It would be more like a ballet or something.

Haha nice one, Chris!

You dance like a pro! hmmm, how bout we start up some quad copter barn dances where everyone is teamed up with a quad and dances, Maybe have a lcd screen on the quad at a level where the human partner can see it while the quad issues instructions on the next move or something. 

You could even start a non profit organ transplant service so all those eyes being popped out from intimate contact with the blades could be re used in this society to enhance the quality of life for those who are sight impaired.

The human mind and the ability to see patterns in everything constantly amazes me.

Lol, looks like martial arts, Kata.  Wonder if Chris knows a little karate or kung fu.

Nice dance, as if i saw myself :) Please add an extra part to dance, "conducting a full turn with an upside down quad", since APM planner fits mag calib data to a sphere.
