So the little RC motors are drawing more current than I expected.  I have a 5Amp 5Volt supply and now the speed controller IC is shutting down during flight.  I have some RC speed controllers on order and will be installing those and then I'll post the code to run the Vertibird.

The Ship is done and once the powe issue is solved, I will post a video.
