I think I am in the correct forum… Should I have put this in the General Discussion Board?
Anyway, I am currently working on my quadcopter project, although I haven’t implemented any algorithm or radio yet due to personal reasons.
I downloaded an app to help me understand PID control better since I had no means to test. Along with this I read some stuff online and found no.com.

I noticed from the app and online that a P controller is enough to control a system, but I also noticed that whatever component I may use (in my case an ESC and motor) that it might break.
I mean, look at the output! App glitched, but here are some sample graphs
