Help!

Problems with erratic throttle


[COLOR=[COLOR=""][/COLOR][/COLOR]Hello I am new to the hobby and have a couple of ? 1?does any one know what would make a drones throttle to be erratic meaning after it s powered up without props on and after I raise throttle and bring it back down again that the throttle will operate by its self with out my hands even on transmitter. Meaning throttle goes up down up down then middle then I disarm it and when I re arm it. It will idle fine until I throttle up and try to bring it down it goes crazy like before 2?where do I go to download beta flight with no problems thank you all antdude

It's normal. The gyro is picking up vibrations from the motors and it is trying to correct itself like if it was in the air. It won't behave that way when airbourne. If you havn't done it you should calibrate the sticks to 1000-2000 and mid to 1500 in Betaflight and the radio. Also before the first flight, be sure to set up and check your failsafe is working without props on. That way if it does anything crazy you can just shut the motors off.

Again it sounds quite normal what you describe. Another thing you should do before flying. Check the throttle, aileron, elevon, yaw are mapped onto the correct sticks. Look at the receiver tab in Betaflight to verify.

Give a full list of your kit and radio. Did you buy it all new or used ?

I would try this
Create a new model in the radio and rebind then do a test flight
If it still makes no difference.
Then try re-flashing the firwware on the fc to a different version.
