PID for Dummies episode?

Or perhaps multiple episodes...

Take a multicopter of some sort and some of the more popular/common flight controller boards and get a little more in depth about setting them up and tuning them. Something geared more towards those of us just getting into multi-rotors.

Come up with a couple methods to demonstrate how the PID concept works, be it the cruise control example, ovens, thermostats, etc... and then translate that into something understandable by the less technically inclined?

Maybe some segments showing something along the lines of, "If your quad does this, then change this setting in this direction." Rinse, lather, repeat. Show us how to go from a badly behaving, freshly built aircraft to a smooth video platform, or a twitchy aerobatic beast, or something in between.
