People keep asking me what PID's I'm running on my nighthawk. Well, I've been lazy and have just been flying on the stock default PID's which are the default baseflight PID's. It actually flies very well on the defaults. But it can certainly fly a lot better too.

My goal here was to try and do a no cut video of me tuning the 280 to show what's involved. Unfortunately I ran into some issues with my phone and tablet I usually use for tuning and had to use an ancient laptop...whose screen didn't show up at all on camera :(

So this is even more boring than I had intended. Sorry about that. But hopefully it gives some insight into what it's like to start working on a tune for a quad.
