Provide us more information as mtnsurveyor says please.

It could be several different things. Bad accel/giro calibration, wrong motor spinning direction, ESCs connected to wrong inputs, etc.

Best regards.


Please how do I check my flight log (.bin)
Am unable to send picture too

you can download log from FC by mission planner

Sound something bad connected, esc spinning in bad direction or props in incorrect position, check everithing. Or motor/esc fail.

The easy way is to remove the card from your FC. My preferred way is through MP just to save ware&tare on the chip reader

Why can you upload a photo? Either reduce the size or use google drive.

Seems to be some motors are spining wrong side…

Pls check this motor layout for a quad

If you are using ardupilot, pls see this picture

Fot Pixhawk, this one

Finaly, use the test motor tool under Initial Setup- Optional Hardware. TAke out the props and there you can test motor by motor and the the spin.

Good Luck!
