ArduCopter first flight and crash.

 

 

Hi Guys after sorting out a very frustaring ESC problem I finally got to the flying stage but didnt end to well .

Above video of me just increasing the throttle and all I wantted to achieve was stable liftoff and touch down again but instead it jumped up with only 15% throttle and started spinning and also wabeling from left two right and crashed. I did 2 flight both did the same .

 

More info

No Sonar

Mangento yes(inclination -25.12 for South Africa Johannesburg if someone cares to check if Im correct )

ArduCopter 2 code

New APM planner used .

 

I did the hand test first just spinning the motors and tilting the copter to see if it compensated for it and it did so I assumed I was ready for a Flight.

 

Any idea what to change to get stable lift off ?

    Did you do a hand test? That would have saved your copter. 

    Hold the copter in your hand and see if you are level when your apply throttle. Try the controls. If it feels right it will fly right.

    Go back and redo all the setups, I'm sure you missed a step, or there was a hardware issue.
