You can't have any stick input when switching modes I.e. into APS...fingers off sticks!

Make sure to do the throttle calibration correctly.

You need a separate adequate bec/battery supply, I.e. castle pro with APS the power needed used goes way up. Don't know why but for sure. Brown outs caused me a bunch until I figured this out.

Most roll in and crash are from doing the natural thing and flying at all times and flipping into APS ... You Must be off the sticks when switching into APS or you mess up its idea of level. Setup requires a swash leveler and perfect setup.. Of 8 and 12 degrees. Climb high before switching into APS and be prepared to switch back and recover if it acts up..

If your looking for the APS to save you... Think again.. Time and money better spent getting proficient.. Want a easy to fly Heli go with DJI Wookong H, you can leave the mode in stabilize and level and relax from takeoff to landing.. Please know that with any autopilot if setup isn't perfect you WILL crash.
