I´m glad you like it :)It can fly on its own with no external input. There are many features like return to home or loiter mode. You can also set it up to land automatically but i did not try that so it just kept going in cirles after coming home. Here are more examples of its modes (https://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/flight-modes.html)I designed it to land without any landing gear. The propellers actually nerver broke on a plane that I build with the same landing style :) I do not have any more pictures of the electronics since I took it apart after the crash. But there are many great videos about that. Here is a playlist that was very helpful (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYsWjANuAm4ojGzlss3L7O48pt-mm5Xqv)
Sure. It is used as the tail boom. It is hollow so the cables to the rear servos and receiver can be passed through.I used one out of aluminium wich is indeed quite heavy but still worked out with the cg. You can use lighter materials.
