Aaron Kahn and I did flight testing of our Rev 2.2 control boards over the weekend. I've performed post flight analysis of the flight data that recorded and posted the curated data. You can see the calibration run, the initial starting and liftoff, several pirouettes and sensor tuning steps, and an autorotation following fuel exhaustion. We damaged part of the accelerometer on due to a somewhat sudden stop. You can see the acceleration spike in the last graph.

I was able to snap a great many pictures of the helicopter in flight, and the best one of all is available as 1024x768 wallpaper image. Let me know if you like it!
