"FWIW, If you leave the battery in the Inspire 1 It presses pretty tightly against the top of the case.  Most people recommend not putting the battery in the unit when it's packed away."

"@Sgt Ric - I wondered the same thing but my comment is now missing. Regardless, 3DR copters aren't designed for flying indoors so it was probably a good move. Hopefully there we some 3DR products on display though. "

I've checked all the below and are correct.

- is the software configured for X and not + copter?
- is your "front" orientation correct on your board?
- is your board mounted right side up?
- do you have the CW and CCW props attached to the correct motors?

I've checked the manual from kkmulticopter and http://rcexplorer.se/page14/kkguide/kkguide/quad.html
