I have both set to 500 already. So I don't know what else to try.

In Stabilize mode you are directly controlling throttle output where as in throttle-assisted modes, you are making a request to ascend/descend at a given rate.  The parameter you are interested in is PILOT_VELZ_MAX.  Default for Iris is 250.  Just double that and set it to 500 and it will give it a mush more responsive feel.  PILOT_ACCEL_Z controls the acceleration and is also set at 250, but I feel like 250 is adequate.  See parameter descriptions here:

In stab mode if I go full throttle it takes off straight up very fast as you would expect. In alt hold or pos hold however it goes up but much much slower. Anybody know what I need to turn up to increase throttle authority? Thx

@DG Yes I have a Taranis! Like the way it hooks on the lip of the antenna base great design.  Perfect man thanks!!!!

I should have asked if you have a Taranis :)

That was a link to the adapter. You still need the main bracket mount.

@ Richard Kennedy

I bought a monitor bracket for my Taranis from Evolution3D. It is high quality. They also make mounts for tablets and phones here

Hi Everyone, i´m new in building Quadcopters, just last week i ordered all that i need to build my first one and today found out that i ordered the wrong battery (i think).


Lipo 2 cell 7.4v 2650mAh nanotech Turnigy, instead of a 3 cell.


Can i power (fly) my F450 Apm 2.6 with this battery or definitely i need to buy the 3 cell battery.


Thanks in advance to the community
