First outdoor tests of RTL and AutoPilot modes. Also tested FBW mode over some steep hills. HW consists of full APM1, Arduino Pro Mini over I2C controlling dual wheel encoders. GPS integration coming soon.

Nice man!

I think the next frame will include a servo stabilized pivot to go over hills at an angle. Once the top-heavy frame hits a steep hill at an angle it tips over easily. Otherwise it's pretty capable.
