videos are nice, but definealty read the wiki.
not reading it is where most newcomers missout.

dont forget betaflight is BETA. so theres really no "easy way" if your not technically up to speed on computers, drivers, ports, and good a keeping track of firmware version changes. what was common practice in one version, can literally lead to scheduled fly aways (like into your face), in other versions.

Betaflight is fairly user friendly these days! It has a lot of code in recent versions to prevent bad things from happening. Don't let it scare you but do study the forum stuff and Youtube stuff. You will learn a lot and it will make things much more enjoyable.

yeah ok.

how many places in BF can you check the wrong box and either make your quad unflyable, flip over instantly, fly away on signal loss, or worse burn out the motors.

they released several versions that were prone to FOD on micros, which was "no biggie" they said, since "no one really flies micros."

then all of the sudden they change filtering so that if you paste in your old settings in, like you've always been able to do (and was recommended) and now it shoots to the moon or burns motors.

this was noted in large type at the bottom of the release page, but many still missed it.
if youre not someone that reads everything, BF can kick you in the

The Anti Taz mode prevents most of those bad things from happening. Yes you need to work to get it set up right but most of the time things just won't work until you get it mostly right. There are plenty of good videos to help you learn how to properly set up a quad. If you are that afraid of Betaflight you need to find a "safer" hobby.
