Hi Van,
Scroll down past the poll stuff to posts #1 and #3. In those posts you will find info on the ESCs and other Mega helpful Indexed links and build, motor, ESC, frames and tuning tips from Gents who posted their helpful details on successful multicopter builds. Hope that helps
Cheers,
Jim

Turn the brake off, battery typeto Ni, cut off to low and start mode to normal. Everything else is correct.

@tc3wins, CopterControl, OpenPilot is for the INS/Pro not the board you have.

You will probably have to reset the board now as it will be mighty confused ;-)

@Anatoly +1 for that a minimum of an 18A speed controller I would have thought.

Had an identical issue today, loaded latest GCS, connected to a board that has an older firmware - did not recognise the Reciever.

Will load up the new firmware to see if it makes a diference, it probably will

Firmware versions are tied to their GCS version, they go hand in hand if you update one, update t'other.
