Quadcopter failsafe algorithm recovery after propeller loss

According to the comments, the detection and recovery is done onboard using gyros and motor commands. This would be great to integrate in the current crop of autopilots to handle props loss.

This is great! Most of the autopilots out there use attitude PID control, which means that they really only care about maintaining an attitude, not really taking into account the actual kinematics/dynamics of the quadrotor. One day the autopilots will implement a model-based control.
