>> As I understand it, to maintain control of a typical quadcopter, the flight controller adjusts the speed of each rotor several hundred times a second, based on feedback from various sensors - this may (!) be beyond the Apple //e.  Besides, the quad couldn't carry it!

I wasn't all that serious.

Just wanted to see, on a whim last night, if I could make it lift off. Didn't happen. There are places where I could remove a part or two for weight savings, and I could gear up the motor for more power, but it's not worth the effort... for now. :)
