Problem With Lift off after using latest MP

For the past week I came across with the problem where my Heli is not Takeing off after doing my final PID adjustments in latest MP( wHEN I MEAN TAKE OFF I MEAN IT WON'T GET OFF THE GROUND EVEN WHEN  REV'ED UP AT MAX). On the work bench i test all settings with my props off and all seems well, but when i get ready to test my Heli outdoor it just doesnt want to take off. i had this problem before, and all i did was reset the APM and entered all the PIDs, but this time not even that works. I  am…See More

About Me:
I am a very creative person and just getting into Traditional Heli, i think it would be an excellent experince and hobby to get into. i love the outdoors and travel here and there, where the crowd tends to be to join for fun. I have been flying the traditional for a few months already and i am loveing it.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I ve built a few planes and Rc Cars in my past, from diffrent materials like, styrofoam, light metals and light wood. This is more of a challenge and more technical, I have some experince in C programming and Avr Programming, I have a degree in Mechincal Engineering and Electrical Engineering and this is where i can use these skills for fun and not just for work. I want to try to help out in problem that other hobbiest.
