  10. Kenny Michaud on February 25, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Just got an armattan marmotte. I put in a frsky r-xsr receiver….its bound to the flight controller. I have no stick movement on beteflight. I followed your instructions but still no movement…!

  11. Red Wine on February 25, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Looks like a good video. Thanks

  12. Rene Seib on February 25, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    its 5 years later, i think im halfway to be ready to fly ahahahah

  13. Tia Arredondo on February 25, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Let me begin with, as far as my knowledge of drones and flying and RC’s and all that goes with it,.. I have no Idea whatsoever what Im doing, how to do it, or if Im even doing anything! I just liked the thing and one day, after two years of going back and forth over getting this drone or not, I finally stepped up, Soon as I bought it, I immediately hit cancel, but the purchase went through regardless; and because I tried to cancel the order, even though I paid for a 2 day delivery, took a month for the drone to arrive.

    Finally, on Thursday, last week I got it! I spent that whole day boggled as to why I couldn’t get in the air. When my girlfriend suggested that I might have the wings placed incorrectly, I thought she was joking, all the wings looked identical. But after she showed me several videos of my bad wing placement, took her advice and changed my wings, and it flew!. Goggles worked too, I’m on my way!

    I got the drone in the air, not for very long and not very stable either, so I watched more videos hoping to gain some knowledge. On YouTube I heard many talking about this CLEAR FLIGHT website and another one BETA FLIGHT. Im interested, I go to the web site plug in my drone and I hit something;… Don’t know what and Don’t know how, but now the drone won’t respond, just incessantly beebs! It doesn’t register on my Fs-I6; and on both of those web sites now, it reeds Im Dis Armed! and in a fail safe mode. I have ZERO idea what I did!

    I called a drone shop, 100 bucks to diagnosis, I just spent $400 getting the drone! I think that kinda bites but I really wanna get back in the air, Can anyone help me out? Again I have the Arris 250 and a FlySky Fsi6 radio, How do I get them to talk again and Yes; I was given a bind unit; but I have no Idea what to insert it in to bind my radio!

    Thank you for your time, I’ve been wasting the past 11 of mine trying to get back in the air, with no luck, .UGH!! Thank you in advance!

  14. Alden Diaz on February 25, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Do you need to do this if you have dji system?

  15. cenmike82 on February 25, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Dam I though it be easy omg frustrating

  16. ASBESTOS Fibers on February 25, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Mode switches show no change on screen.
    What may be wrong?
    Everyone tests theirs and it’s works so they move on…

  17. BlueJFPV on February 25, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    How do you manually CLi endpoints for a dx5e?

  18. Stevensbox on February 25, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I was sooo lost until I watched this video and walked to the steps. I did the most stupidest thing; confused the FS button on my GEPRC Mark3 with the actual VTX button & could not bind to my FrSky X Lite Pro. Thought it was broken & bought 2 more Receivers, the Q X7. Its been a week long nightmare. But thanks to you, I’m on track. Just can’t figure out how to get the receiver to work with Liftoff.

  19. TheWickettj on February 25, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I’m having an issue with my qx7s and my switch’s i have a crossfire transmitter. I can’t get them to recognize on betaflight I tried all the aux options. The sticks work just the switches are not. Any suggestions

  20. H2O- FPV on February 25, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Them I’m glad to got u explaining this betaflight u r the best on this business my personal opinion.

  21. Keenu on February 25, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Hello. My brand new quad (f4 FC, source one frame) starts to oscillate very hard when I hold it in my hand and when trying to fly, it just flip over and dies. What could be happening?

  28. Vasanthakumar Velkumar on February 26, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Hi than your for video.
    I have a question , How to identify my ESC is connecting with my FCB.?

  29. nutsidea on February 26, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Cannot connect to Betaflight even after you loaded the driver onto your mac? 
    It could very well be the USB cable you are using is a power charging ONLY cable. Find one with DATA transfer enabled. It should connect nicely. Most USB cables that came with your Android phone will work because it allows you to connect to your comp.
    Took me half a day to figure this out. Hope that helps.

  30. Rhett Mashburn on February 26, 2021 at 12:08 am

    hi guys! i have a traxxas slash vxl 2wd and know a little bit about rc short course. i do not, however, know anything at all about rc planes, drones, or fpv. all i really want is something cheap i can connect to my phone (samsung j6) and can attach to my traxxas reciever (maybe?) any advice/help you guys have would be super appreciated. thanks!

  31. MaNaMaNa FPV on February 26, 2021 at 12:09 am

  33. Dan Kehrig on February 26, 2021 at 12:10 am

    I know this is an old video but I just hookes up my mobula7 to beta flight and all of a sudden it starts smoking!!!! Did I get a bad board? I’ve only flown like 6 times and wanted to change the tuning so I could get better at flying! I am new at the hobby except for a mavic but that’s not really for sport! Anyway I am disabled and can’t afford to pay out for new escs every 6 flights! Any help or advice if I did something Incorrect that knowledge would be helpful! Thanks and your channel rocks I always check your reviews before I buy stuff!

  34. AKMAL FARHAN on February 26, 2021 at 12:12 am

    wow, easy and clearly instructions to follow. In last part, how to get the software update esc firmware. right now I’m using simonk 30a. my motor rotate not sync speed…

  35. Taz Man on February 26, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Hello, I have a BetaFPV 85x, plain fpv camera 4S, I am trying to setup headfree mode, and there is also a headadj, now I am just activating headfree and doing nothing with eh headadj mode. Now whenever I try and use headfree, the quad does crazy stuff, for instance if I start it off in headfree, it will try and skid along the ground crazy, if I start off in angle mode, hover and then switch it to headfree, the first stick movement I make it flys off crazy and crashes. So what gives, there is a compass and accelerometer in the quad, so headfree should work, angle mode works great and horizon mode works great, it hovers great, I cannot figure out headfree mode, it should be a no brainer, do I need headadj to work with headfree?

  36. MaddMaxx_66 MaddMaxx66 on February 26, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Thanks so much for the video man! I now have more confidence with Betaflight!

  37. phantom haranguer on February 26, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Simple? Not. Thorough, yah, pretty much, ty!

  38. Khylian Edwards on February 26, 2021 at 12:17 am

  39. Jason Tayler on February 26, 2021 at 12:17 am

  40. rcsnapon on February 26, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Awesome video

  41. Gary Sherman on February 26, 2021 at 12:20 am

  42. nostradamus on February 26, 2021 at 12:20 am

  43. philip strom on February 26, 2021 at 12:20 am

  44. Rich Sadler on February 26, 2021 at 12:24 am

  45. Matt Matt on February 26, 2021 at 12:27 am

    What I have to do when two of tyro 99 motors work occasionally and when they work they are faltering?

  46. Brandon Bihl on February 26, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Hey Justin, love the channel, So i’m trying to use betaflight and i get this warning "Non – Cleanflight/Betaflight firmware is not supported, except for CLI mode" know why/how i can fix this?

    I downloaded the cp210x drivers, i am using the sp F3.

    Running on a mac. Next thing i guess i’ll try is running on windows parallel?

  47. Colin Maughn on February 26, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Thanks drone camps now learn to build my first quad

  48. Artur Pjetri on February 26, 2021 at 12:29 am

    my receiver isn’t on it, its a fly sky, I’ve seen other people use it, I just don’t know why it won’t work for me
    im using a vortex 150 and it has a servo 3 pin connecter on it and only 1, not 4/5 for those channels

  49. An Anna on February 26, 2021 at 12:29 am

    I click Connect and noting hapens. It says serial port opened and then closed, but there is no red disconnect button. Failed to open Serial Port I don’t think I’m connected. So obviously you skipped some steps. Rewind even further. What do I need to do with this COM1 drop down menu and I can’t change 115200 lower. I hear the USB connect and disconnect sound when I plug it in… Goku Flight Controller. I don’t want to flash the firmware, I just want to see what factory settings are on there and punch them in if I need to. I don’t see any bottom tab for a CLI anywhere. And somehow I just changed the language for the whole thing to Spanish… 1#$%^&* I had to find this picture to locate where to change it back:

    I hate this bullshit, I am getting nowhere… I can’t even connect to thing and get into the settings.

  50. Scott Abramczyk on February 26, 2021 at 12:31 am
