Hi Jean-Claude,

yes, when I said manually I meant stability augmented of course.
Without it its impossible to manually fly the quad. So stabillization
works (but better attitude estimation is under development).
About autonomous mode: AFIK you can't use flight plans yet, but
Gautier was/is working on that and I'm not sure how far this is....
I'll be on the road for 6 weeks now. In July I'll be working on it
again and also start to write something up in the wiki.
My guess is that we can announce the quadrotor "support" end of summer.

The IMU is connected to the main board via SPI (including the mag sensor).

Cheers, Felix
