I'm using the 7mm motors with the short 1mm shaft, so I think they have enough power. Also, I'm using a 600Mah single cell battery. You can't tell from the pictures, but under the foam is a basswood stick frame, that is where the weight is coming from. I'll make another frame here soon that's much lighter.

Does it dive in the direction on the orange blades?

I could be wrong but it looks like you orange blades are in the wrong position so it's pushing down on that side, leave the black blades as they are and try and swap the orange blades with each other.

Swap your two orange bladed motors (do not take blades off orange motors).

Blades and motors should be diagonal pairs, see below...Name: ImageUploadedByTapatalk1359395074.938738.jpg

See my black and white motors are diagonal from each other and your are on the same side (rear)?

Look at the angle of my X4 blades and the arrows on the V929 PCB.

Along the centre line of the craft the inner blade edges of the left/right motors should be the same angle (look at how the light is shining on my blades).

Your flying weight is a little a little heavy but it should take off, my X4 flew for 5 mins at this weightName: ImageUploadedByTapatalk1359395418.692113.jpg
