Hi,

Which firmware are you using ?

Sounds like you are using a 2.3 firmware with a 2.2 GUI to make the setup.

Hey thank you for the quick reply. I fixed the problem. I changed the firmware from the 2.4 one to 2.3 from you.. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2033762

Omg What a coincidence!! I am quite new to all this. But thank you so much goebish.

Your code works great. But the new problem Im facing is trying to use entire capacity of my motors . I tweaked few things and the present status being that the quad takes of with the at stick at half throttle. But it doesnt stay there for long and crashed down. May be just a feet off the ground. Im ecstatic nonetheless. Have you faced a similar problem?

I don't really understand your problem, if you want to hover at less than mid throttle then adjust throttle mid in the GUI. Or maybe it's just a defective battery ?

I changed the throttle mid as you asked me too and clearly at lesser throttle stick position , the throttle is more. However, the quad was still not taking off to a sufficient height. It used to reach just 1 or 2 feet above ground at full throttle and then fall down.

I messed around more with the configuration to see what might be the problem. I even thought that quad could be heavy.

Finally, I found the problem----- Vibrations.
I didn't know they would affect this much- And they are not visible. i increased the low pass filter setting to 20 Hz and Voila.

It takes off and hit the ceiling
I know i'm delighted over something very normal for experts in this matter. But it's my first flying quad and I'm ecstatic.

Thanks again for all the help. This community has been really helpful. You guys are the best.

Next task -- controlling ceiling-hitting-quad
