Radio channels reversed or fly it backwards?

I am just getting set up and ran into a minor roadblock in terms of which motors should be spinning. Here is a picture of how my quad is set up. X configuration:

3690896283?profile=originalSo, I should expect that when I push the pitch stick forward, the rear motors 2 and 4 should spin up. But the opposite happens - 1 and 3 spins up.


The roll direction is also reversed - push the stick right, 1 and 4 spin up.


How should I fix this problem? I know I can fix it by reversing the channels on the transmitter or just flying it "backwards" (180 degrees to what I intended it) but I'm worried the stabilization would correct in the wrong way.

    Do not reverse your radio channels to fix issues. Your radio should output high PWM for roll right and pitch back. Check the roll right = about 4500 and pitch back = about 4500 in the CLI radio test.

    If you see reversed control, check that you have the channels in the right order.
