Quad flips on take off
Just finished up quad #2 with a KK2.1 (1.6 fw) and after finally getting the F450 flying, I went out and purchased a small trainer, acro HK f330 for grins and giggles.
However, after an hour of messing with it and it doing the same thing, I figure I'd come over to the experts and see what the noob has messed up on.
When I attempt to take off, the quad flips instantly to its right. I did have one prop on backwards and causing it to flip to the left.
I was at first thinking it was the props being the wrong direction, however, that was not the case. If I did goof up, it'll be in the video below. I did attempt to move the battery around to offset the weight difference with the wires (the bundle will be removed as soon as I make a power distro. board for it)
The green props are the CW and the black props are CCW and setup as per the KK motor layout (1-2 Front, 4-3 Back)
ESC's are HK Multistar's flashed to simonk fw

The KK2 is configured as quadcopter + orientation as standard. In the menu change it to Quadcopter x.
If this is not the cause then one or more of your esc's is connected into the wrong slot on the KK2
Top left motor goes in the top right slot on the KK2
Top right motor goes in the next one down
Bottom right next one down
Bottom left next one down

looking at your setup you have the lcd facing the 2 red arms and buttons in the rear .so that means the red arms are the front .
from that perspective the motors go like this
front left is number 1
front right is number 2
right rear is number 3
left rear is number 4 .
check your work .and make sure all motors are turning the correct directions as shown in the motor setup .do this with the props off and check direction of each spinning motor .to reverse a motor just swap any 2 motor leads out of the 3 available .
then put the props back on and verify that each prop is in fact blowing air down .
