I knew that choosing the flight controller needed to come next. After all quadcopters replace mechanical parts with gyros. If you think about it it is really just like a computer game! Im a terrible helicopter pilot. I can barely control a coaxial beginners helicopter. Being able to use a flight controller was a big part of the appeal of a multirotor platform. The simpler flight controllers only have angular rate of turn sensors. These sensors are what we call gyros. They can sense when you are turning but that is all. A feature that I really wanted the flight controller to have was accelerometers. An accelerometer can tell in which direction is down by measuring the acceleration due to gravity. With this auto leveling feature I can let go of the control sticks when I get into trouble and it will bring it back to perfectly level attitude. This was very important to me!
