Hey Guys, Newbie here so I will do my best to answer questions, provide info.
The quad is a 120mm carbon frame with Beef’s Brushed Board and external DSM2 RX using PPM input. Tenergy 380mah battery fully charged. 8.5mm silver motors (not dark edition) which I believe came from MMW (my friend used to work there).
BF 3.1.7 Airmode and Arm on Aux1 (I am NOOB), PWM Frequency 12000Khz, Tried 70% Throttle Expo this morning. Receiver gets 1090 to 1880 in BF reliably.
The quad arms and flies predictably on default PID but I cannot gain elevation unless I keep it dead level. It acts like there is a rock tied to it when I expected to be bouncing off the ceiling. Again it flies smooth, and predicable, just NO GUTS, at all. The first props I had were from a JJRC1100 ( I am using hand-me-downs forgive me), I swapped to a different style with more angle and a slightly smaller length and issue worsened. It is slower than my E011 with a camera on it…
Again I am new so I’m having trouble pin pointing a cause on this one and have searched pretty extensively to no avail. Let me know what you guys are thinking here and I can post up pictures, files, whatever you need. I have a set of dark motors but would really like to avoid soldering on all the connectors as I’m not convinced is HW related… anyways cheers and thanks for the insight!!
