Last year I bought the 3dr DIY quadcopter kit and purchased separately the Spektrum DX7s transmitter with the Spektrum AR8000 receiver. I only just recently assembled everything. I have updated the apm with the latest update, calibrated the esc's, made sure the propellers are correct and made I selected the correct frame in the mission planner setup wizard. The problem I am having is trying to take off. It seems to want to flip to one side. Can anyone give me any tips? Is there something I need to do in regards to the settings on the DX7s or does it work automatically from the box? Any help would be great!

  • Did you check your motor rotation? As I understand it, two rotate CW and the other two CCW.
