Taking a break from tuning... Man this is not going well :P

Best I've gotten is it dances in my hand a bit. If I lower my hand from there then it drops, raise my hand the tiniest bit and it sucks up to the coil...

I bought the wrong magnet wire (28awg instead of .28mm/30awg) so I added a bunch more turns to at least bring it up to around 42 ohm. If I did the math right (which is a 50% chance at best :P ) then I have more turns than filling up the spool with 30awg. I redesigned the coil holder to house the new coil.

To find a decent starting point I set I and D to zero and I get the best result with P = 4.5. I try playing with I and D from there but haven't seen any improvements... YET!

Any tips are appreciated.
