Strange behaviour, tuning issue ?

Hi !

I just finished my quad, with APM. Uploaded 2.0.50 and made all neccessary setup steps. When I tried fly, after an in flight trimming, it holds level pretty well, but it's literally impossible to control it's flight. It reacts to stick input, but just for for a small moment, then returns to level, to keep it moving to a direction i have to give more and more stick input, then when I release the stick it reacts violently and overshoot to the opposite direction, then levels back. (unless the original stick command is large enough to cause a massive overshoot when released. In that case it most likely crash...)

I'm puzzled. Where to start? Is it a tuning issue or something I did wrongly?

(Attached a log from a last flight)

  • Any idea ?

  • I tried to tune PID parameters, but did not realised any significant changes.... I went down to Stable_pid 3.6 but it did not helped.... is there any hint where to start other that try to change parameters randomly? It's not wobbling or something...
