Flight Modes, Arming, and Kill Switch

The primary goal of the basic assembly is to be able to pilot the AVR drone in stabilized mode. Therefore we will configure SWB (3 position switch) to control which flight mode we’re in. In addition to setting up flight modes, we will also enable a kill switch on SWD (2 position switch). This is VERY IMPORTANT in case the AVR drone needs to be shut down due to a fly-away or complete loss of control. The video below demonstrates this process.
