Thanks for the suggestions. Of course a current sensor would be more
precise, but a little correction is at least better than no correction
at all.

I have implemented the changes now (see pull request: ) and tested them on
my quad. The psi angle is now stable after motor startup, so it seems
to work. I still have to verify it for higher throttle, but in general
it looks promising :) .
