I am building a quadcopter using the tutorial The Ultimate PVC Quadcopter.
When ever I go to lift off, at full throttle, the motors spin but the quadcopter doesn't go anywhere. I have checked again and again and the motors are spinning in the right direction, and have the right propellers. Does anybody know why my quad won't fly?
I am using a KK2.1.5 flight controller, propellers marked with 1045r on the counter clockwise motors and the propellers just marked with 1045 on the clockwise motors.
If I switch the propellers, 1045r clockwise and 1045 counter clockwise, then my quadcopter flips over.
The layout of the motors is:
1. CW 2. CCW
4. CCW 3. CW
I am a beginner and this is the first drone I have built/owned.
P.S. My quadcopter weighs 3.2 pounds, is using 980 kv motors, 10" propellers, 20 A ESCs, and a 3S 50C 2200 mAh Li-Po battery.
