I made a custom Quad (X configuration) with light weight aluminum towel rods and thin wood sheets as a center plate. I am using the tilt camera mount from Hobby-King as a base.
I am using the following components:
ZIPPY Flightmax 8000mAh 3S1P 30C - (2 batteries in parallel for longer flight) (644 grams each x2)
Camera Mount (195 grams)
Optima 7 series receiver.
The total weight of my quad after assembly is little less than 3000 grams (3 Kg).
I went through the step by step instructions and mounted the props in proper directions, calibrated ESC's and I made sure everything else is proper.
When I try to fly my quad at full throttle, my quad barely fly at 1 or a couple of centimeters above ground. I suspect it is because of too much weight????
How can I modify my quad so that I can fly it normally???
I thank you all for your time and awaiting your replies.
Just by visual inspection, does anything seem wrong? What else can I try to solve the problem.
Thank you all for your help.
