"Figured it out thank you for all of your help. So I thought that the PDB would be wired correctly (for X quads) when it arrived but... It isn't. Motors three and four were reversed (I later checked the PCB and it is labeled I correctly) but if…"

"Sounds like you ESCs might not be programmed correctly what do they do if you just connect them individually to the receiver forgetting the APM all together. What do you mean by you rewired the PDB?"

   This may be a neewb question but its been driving me crazy, For the last two weeks I've been building a TBS F450'ish quad and I finally got it all put together. I programmed it with the latest software, Calibrated the gyro and compass. Also calibrated the turnigy plush 40 AMP ESC, with T-Motors. I have checked the direction of the motors and also have the correct push/pull props on the motors.  -So the problem, is that when I go to fly in stabilize (or any other mode for that matter) mode…See More
