  • Add one more to the list - Set your TX into ACRO or airplane mode.

    Do not use Heli Modes.

    Heli modes operate *two* servo channels (CP and Tail rotor pitch) at times depending on the servo configuration for the swashplate, but always two. This is not good for multirotor operations.

    Some newer TX software have multirotor settings. Use them but read the manual to understand what they do and also watch the servo feedback settings in Mission Planner to make sure only one channel changes with one stick movement. This is really old news.
