Connecting my RC transmitter to the CF client

I found a way to do this. FWIW here is what I did to use my transmitter and radio to control CF. 1. Used the VM client on my laptop 2.

Re: Balancing during the assembly

I was just reading this thread and a thought occurred. With one motor running, the frame should move back and forth with the unbalanced propeller. This is detected by the accelerometers. What about an LED hooked to one of the header pins(you would plug it in for prop balancing) that would strobe the...
