cRaZy arducopter PCB HELP!!!!!

Hi guys!


I´m newbie in the forum and I am looking for answers because I think I am doing all steps correctly and something wrong it is happening.


1 month ago I bought my arducopter kit, I have soldered it and I have built my own frame and mounted my first arducopter

The problems start when after programing in the AMP with the last downloaded version, I am trying to do my first setup before flying.


After program and test in CLI position, I have gone to FLY position and I have plugged my LiPo, red and green lights starting to blink, the arducopter PCB is starting, red one is for GPS connection and the green one blinking is motors armed (as throotle down right), then I go throotle up and the motors do not run then I move throotle left down and the green light go solid I go throotle up and the motor start to run all this happend while I have my USB connected.


Then I disconnected The USB wire all looks like OK, I go throotle up and motors are running, now with the other stick moving around, I hear all motors going up and going down r.p.m


Finally I unplug the LiPo, plug again I am trying to go throotle up to hear motors and nothing happens, red and green lights are blinking, the green one looks like motors armed but all is wrong!


Motors armed when is solid green light.


Only works with USB connected.


I have the receiver connected to the arducopter PCB for power supply and with external Rx battery too!! 


I think PCB arducopter is damaged, am I right?


I hope somebody could help me!
