Hi Everyone!

I managed to get some control issues sorted out and my quad plane is
actually flying, well sort of.  Here is a video of a very short (it was
dark and I was getting bitten by mosquitoes) test flight in quad mode.

This weekend I intend on taking it to my local r/c club and trying a
transition to fixed wing flight.  I'm worried about how it will go as the
quad motors are to small for the AUW and get hot after a couple minutes.
The transition should be quicker than that though.  They were the only
motors I had and I do intend on buying some bigger ones when I get the
cash.  Worst case, I crash an experimental aircraft ;)

I will be putting some documentation and the 3D printed parts up on my
website shortly.  Apart from the PID values that need more tuning, let me
know what you think.
