it's not a PID problem
go to transmitter adjust screen, check if yaw channel is 1500, if not, trim it to get it there
You guys gave me a confidence boost so I put the props on and tried away!
First attempt I slowly crept the throttle up and it seemed like what was happening earlier was happening now, the quad was yawing while trying to take off. Finally, it took off but immediatly tried to dive to one spot so I brought throttle down to 0 and reset.
I kept trying to take off but the same thing occured, quad would get off the ground about a foot, while yawing, and eventually tip over to one side.
Not sure if this issue is related to the previous or if this is a completly unrelated one. Configurator is reporting the same conditions, 2 motors increase while 2 decrease.
How does your copter fly in acro mode? One other thing, have you calibrated your accelerometers using the CLI? I missed that early on and that made a huge improvement.
