"Tyler, I don't see anything fundamentally wrong other than you were flying in Stabilize mode with a significantly over powered craft.  As such, you are controlling the copter altitude manually with the throttle and small inputs can cause…"

"Not sure what props you have, but it looks like a 6s battery.  Maybe too many volts for the pitch / motors?  Did you check the config on ecalc?"

Finally airborne but still issues

Hey guys, so after 9 months I finally got my large quad in the air. I changed ESC's from afro 30a to Hobbywing 40a. I went 40a just because. Anyway, I am running a pixhawk on a x650f frame that has been stretched. I am using 4114 330KV motors with 15inch props. So after changing out ESC's she finally gets into the air.The issue now is that it does not hold throttle properly. Say I am at 40% throttle on the transmitter and I hold it there the quad does not respond properly. It will throttle up…See More

"Awesome thank you much! Github for me is so confusing for some reason. Obviously what you linked is simple but if I try to navigate and understand what I am doing in it i just get lost. I wish there was a tutorial for github."

Best folding propss for multicopters?

Hey guys I am trying to find the best folding props for my quad. I am using 4114 330kv motors. I got some cheap plastics on there right now. I got them originally just to get me by until I could find something that performed better. I am looking for something that is carbon fiber and something around the 15 inch range. I am using 15x5.2 currently would like to stay at that size.See More
