    This may have already been done but I spent some time to decode the Zigbee protocol and was successful. I have a video showing the project and how I did it.

    You can download the spreadsheet for the protocol. I haven't figured out everything but most of it. So help would be awesome!

    This protocol includes the ST10 & ST10+ controller and the Q500 quad. This information allows us to be able to fly the quad using Google Earth as a navigation aid (as in the video) or to even write our own custom controller!

    Here is the video, hope you enjoy.

    Would it be possible to write some code to give the Q500 a orbit mode?

    Wow, great! I wish, I would know earlier that there is a ZigBee sniffer on the market.
    Do you have a link to TI Packet Sniffer? Is there a TI account neccessary?

    My project is described here: http://h-elsner.mooo.com/mydat/Q500log2kml_en.pdf

    Yes I think so. I'm looking into flying the Q500 with a 3D mouse. From there, we should be able to do any kind of path following mode. It usually takes me a month or two for each project. I'll post updates ASAP. Thanks for watching the video.
