I have been horrible at updating this project page... long story short, we have most of the flight operations working now, with the exception of yaw. (From a physical POV, yaw works, but somewhere between the controller and PID it is failing). Warren is still working on his iPhone controller program, and making good progress (I will let him add updates on the details).

I have been going through far too many props (and motors) while making it and learning to fly; I thus built myself a prop guard today out of piano wire to hopefully reduce the damage done to the props when they hit something. It's a bit heavy, but seems to work quite well.

Some pictures and a video are included below; you can look on my Youtube channel for other videos.
