Maiden Flight of the Mini - NOT

Ok, just tried to fly the mini for the first time. Didn't even get it off the ground. It keeps wanting to flip tail over head. My wife is laughing at me.

  • Mini V-Tail frame (Prototype version)
  • Naze32 FC w/ 7/26/2012 firmware
  • Turnigy Plush 10amp ESCs
  • IPower 2000kv motors
  • Gemfan 5x3 props
  • Hitec Minima 6T RX
  • Nano-Tech 3s 850mha Battery
Total flying weight - 308g

Pictures below.

This is the first time I've used the Naze FC. It is set for V-Tail and, as per a post earlier in this thread, I dropped the P on the Yaw down to 4.

Rotation is as per the diagram in the first post of the thread. Writing on the props is up.

The Naze manual does not have a motor number diagram for the V-Tail config. I used the Y4 diagram and tried the tail motors once each way (1,3 and 3,1)

Any ideas folks? I'm too new at this to have any beyond the rear motor # swap I already tried.
