just don't arm the motors. put the throttle stick down and to the left. like in my video. You don't need to disconect the motors.

no. just disarm with full left rudder, then the green light should start to blink..

Oh I saw that in tc3wins video. So is this process done while hooked up to the software or just outside? Do you need to recalibrate each time? Need to read page one of this thread more on the subject I guess but I think I am figuring it out.

One more quick video showing the quad flying. Didn't really play with much on the settings. Went down a bit on the Pitch and Roll as well as auto level. Calm winds as compaired to last flight I did today so hard to tell how much this really helped.

Is this done while connected to the computer? Dumb question but not sure if this can be done outside between flights. Any need to calibrate after doing this?

Once done with this procedure, do you then center your trims to see if it fixed it?

You fly on auto level see what way it's drifting the land it. Disable the motors by going low left throttle then make the adjustments as per video. Launch the beast again see if it helped. If need more then land and disable motors again and move again as per video. Should be set after that???

Cool that makes sense. Now, next question....once you make adjustments like in your video. You need more, you bump it more times in direction you need. I got that but will it store this info the next time?

Do you use transmitter trims while flying or just give it what it needs while flying in auto level mode?

If you do use trims, do you then go to center trims after making the adjustment by doing the stick bump method?

Thanks,

Tony

Glad we all can help. Great quad Witespy builds. The only issue is documentation. Not too bad if you know a bit about the Wiicopter subject but if you are new like myself then it is hard to pick up what the documentation and a lot of posts say or mean. At least for me. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
