APM 2.8 Losing control

I just built a new AMP 2.8 build. Its my first time with ardupilot. When I do a test flight it seems to behave fine foe 20 seconds or so and then it takes off either left or right and my stick inputs dont seem to have any effect.The flight controller can hear me because I am able to disarm from the transmitter.But i cant throttle down or control the quad normally.As this is my first time with these kind of flight controllers, is there something I should be looking at first?See More
