Failsafe Algorithm for Quads

#2
This would be nice to have. We've all lost a prop in mid flight for one reason or another, and these types of crashes almost always involve a fair amount of damage to cope with.

That's an awesome improvement, but I doubt it'll make it into the 2.0 -- it's memory is pretty much maxed out in v1.6. The 2.1 boards, however, have more memory . . .

I imagine it would require user to flip a mode switch into "safe mode". The tests were probblay run asssuming the rotor was goign to "randomly" fail so I doubt the algorythm would play nice with typical or agressive flight, but if I've got a quad 100' in the air and something goes wrong, I still have some time to switch modes and slow down before it lawn-darts.

There's been talk about this on the multiwii board for a week or two. There's speculation that the current implementation relies on external cameras (based on the group that's doing the work.) but there are already a couple of people talking about how to implement something similar in multiwii.
