First time you install the self locking prop nuts, it will be a pain to screw these on, as threads need to be cut in the nylon insert. If you don't have a proper tool for it, don't bother, it will be a torture for hands and quad.

Btw, why do people want to get into bootloader mode? Did you first try flashing firmware with the regular method? Select firmware flasher tab, select right target, set manual baud rate and then hit flash firmware button? If that doesn't work, and also doesn't work with different baud rate settings, it's time to start shorting bootloader pins. Bootloader is designed foremost to give access to the board, when all other methods have failed.

Compare it to your computer, when you don't know the password for it, and you didn't write it down somewhere, or told your wife, and there is no way to get your computer working, then it's time to "format C"

Ha, new prop nuts are a pain for sure!
In our setup video I tell people to just go ahead and run the nut on to thread it without the prop, then remove and reinstall with prop, makes life easier, especially if you have to use that included "prop wrench"

I just recently loaded multishot on my machine and upped my motor timing to medium high.

When I slow down of course I can regain control. Trying to decide what would cause this as for I have never had or seen a problem like this before.
Any help you all may have would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance bonez

I was hoping you were right but even as I pinched and released my hand from the throttle stick she stil yawed both left and right. So I pose this question. Could it be a PID issue?

Could be several possibilities really, not just PID's. You'll need to go through the process of elimination, starting with the easy stuff first.

Check your radio in the Receiver Tab of BetaFlight to see if there's any twitching. You can also watch the bars while you make inputs on the sticks to give you some visual feedback of your thumb movements. Perhaps increasing the dead band at the center and a stick calibration would be helpful.

Are you using a Taranis? If so, which version of OpenTX? I recall a specific version was causing yaw twitch issues, one reason why I'm still on 2.0.9.

You could try adjusting the TPA to see if that has any effect. Then there's all the filters to play with.

Others will suggest soft mounting the FC and/or motors.

Question for all you Wizard... wizards:

I just got in 2 ARF Wizards (1 for me, 1 for my wife) and while one setups perfectly, the other shows all zeros on the receiver tab in Betaflight (yes, they came pre-flashed with Betaflight... I thought they were still shipping with Cleanflight). Using 3 different receivers gives the exact same result, but the same receivers work perfectly on the other Wizard.

Now for my question: is there anything that anyone can think of that would cause this or am I (as I fear) looking at a 'broken' flight controller?

Note: I posted this in both Wizard threads since it seems there are different people reading each one.

EDIT for future reference (anyone else with the same problem): I used Solo's BF Dump file from post #2 and my receiver is now working... still no clue what setting was bad, but it's fixed now!

Weird Question


Does anyone know why the vtx and cam have the data lines going to the PDB? I was thinking about installing a micro OSD . I, of course, would take those two lines and move them to the OSD. I am just a little confused why they are setup like they are currently. I found this and It looks really clean:

Also, Does anyone know of a good source for the JST-Sh cables for the SP F3 board? I will most likely setup the MicroOSD to UART 2 and I do not see easily accessible pins to solder them to. I would like to plug a 4-pin JST-SH to the board and connect the OSD to the other side.
