Issue with the quadcopter blades spinning


(Douglas Liu) #1

I have a problem with the quadcopter blades spinning, but it won’t take off(full throttle). I have already calibrated the esc, I think my battery was at 50% capacity. Might it be that it’s to heavy? I didn’t use the esc on the build, but 4 separate ones. Any ideas why it may be not flying?
PS I have made sure the blades are spinning in the right direction.
