    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!

    Hey Justin.. I’m with you until I hit firmware flasher.. yes.. first minute. Nothing shows up in my dropdown for my t.h. freestyle.. what am I missing?

  13. Alden Diaz on August 22, 2020 at 10:37 am

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

  14. Tia Arredondo on August 22, 2020 at 10:38 am

    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!

  15. cenmike82 on August 22, 2020 at 10:38 am

  16. MaNaMaNa FPV on August 22, 2020 at 10:38 am

  18. Mau Torres on August 22, 2020 at 10:39 am

    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?

  19. uneekpcs on August 22, 2020 at 10:44 am

    Thanks for taking time to do the vid Nicely explained

  20. Dee1251 on August 22, 2020 at 10:45 am

    How do I flash my mobula 7 , where is the boot button?

  21. nutsidea on August 22, 2020 at 10:46 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.

  22. Google User on August 22, 2020 at 10:46 am

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

  23. MaddMaxx_66 MaddMaxx66 on August 22, 2020 at 10:47 am

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

  24. Keenu on August 22, 2020 at 10:52 am

    i dont have the failsafe tab xd

  25. J P on August 22, 2020 at 10:52 am

    Wow! this was supposed to be easy..!?? I guess I’m dummer then I thought.

  26. Kenny Michaud on August 22, 2020 at 10:52 am

    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…!

  27. An Anna on August 22, 2020 at 10:52 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.

  28. Cesar Arango on August 22, 2020 at 10:53 am

    Hello to all. I recently purchased an Arris C250 V2. It came fine. No problems. I was able to connect to Betaflight, etc. I did an antenna mod on my receiver and when I went to turn it on, nothing. No signal, no longer bound, except that the FC (F3 Raptor) would constantly just start beeping. I also noticed that I could no longer see it on any type of quad software such as Betaflight, INAV, Clean Flight, which I could do before. I did a fresh Betaflight reinstall with drivers, got DFU, and successfully updated the firmware on the F390. No more beeping, but still no binding or Betaflight connection. Betaflight just shows COM1 and no more options, where before I was getting COM9, and connected with it. Can anyone offer any help with this? Thanks in advance.

  29. Gary Cross on August 22, 2020 at 10:54 am

    Great video for 1st timers. Thx for the great info.

  30. Taz Man on August 22, 2020 at 10:56 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?

  31. phantom haranguer on August 22, 2020 at 10:56 am

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

  32. Popdgoo on August 22, 2020 at 10:57 am

    My ESC’s keep beeping when I connect the battery to it, am I missing something?

  33. Gary Sherman on August 22, 2020 at 10:58 am

    i put betaflight on my chromebook and it works like a charm no driver install just installed in and plugged my quad in

  34. nostradamus on August 22, 2020 at 10:59 am

    which is better ardupilot or ros or betaflight, which is more stable?

  35. Vasanthakumar Velkumar on August 22, 2020 at 11:00 am

    Looks like a good video. Thanks

  46. rcsnapon on August 22, 2020 at 11:15 am

    Awesome video

  47. Stevensbox on August 22, 2020 at 11:18 am

    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.

  48. Matt Matt on August 22, 2020 at 11:18 am

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

  50. TheWickettj on August 22, 2020 at 11:20 am
