First flight of new quadcopter build.
No PID parameter tuning or trim (using all default values), basic stabilize mode. I just mounted the motors, calibrated the ESCs, accel, and validated R/C, and flew it. I did not even calibrate the compass.
Time to build: 5 hours (at least 2 of which were just soldering connectors and wires from the raw parts)
