It is obvious we have a terminology barrier to get past. What do you mean by " I have 400w down before I get lift"?
We need a COMPLETE parts list and how much the aircraft weighs with EVERY THING installed including the battery.
Also post some pictures of the aircraft and post the data flash log files, either .log or .bin.
.39 is default, that should do. Also, how did you arrive at the MOT_SPIN_ARM/MIN parameter values? I’m not saying they are wrong just that most everything else looks to be at default. And before flying again definitely set the initial tuning parameters for the prop/battery size. Use the Alt>A plug-in in Mission planner and enter the values manually.
I thought you were suggesting No name ESC’s and you really are if these are what you have. I would suggest at the next re-build opportunity to replace those with some better quality BLHeli firmware ESC’s.
There are 2 versions of these ESC’s. Red shrink wrap and yellow shrink wrap
