PIDS

PIDS are highly dependent on flight setup, which includes props, battery size, externally mounted camera, etc. and also when new firmware versions are released. With each component change, the values in gyro filters and/or other features will be needed to tune again. The user postings of PIDS is to provide an approximate value covering a specific flight setup, so that pilots can tune further from there.
