So far I really like how it flies. Crashed it a few times with no issues. I'll try and get some video up shortly.

That's really nice :) as soon as you made the corrections I'll make one for me. I have an openmv camera that I want to test with it :)

I'm using an rn41 module on an android project and it worked really well. I know it is a little expensive but maybe it worth.

Absolutely. I've been doing everything from my phone and didn't realize it didn't embed.

On led outputs you should put some smd pads if one want to solder the led directly. Can you share the schematic?

The LEDs are the two throughhole pads on the back. I figure people will probably just solder ones in and fold them backward. You can also use the two picoblades on the side (for hex) for additional lighting.

I'll release the schematic soon.
