At the outset let me apologise if I am in the incorrect forum. I am both a newcomer to quad-copter flying and also to this forum so as you can see I have a steep learning curve ahead.
I am using Mission Planner 1.3.33 build 1.1.5820.11240 and I have a newly acquired CX-20 (Quanum Nova) and after battling to get it flying properly in the first instance searching the Internet soon put me onto Mission Planner. Unhappily in the first tries I collided with a tree and damaged the upper shell and lost a propelled nut. I have replaced the shell and the missing nut.
I have used MP to set the 'copter up and although I passed through all 16 steps although the compass setting is somewhat tricky and I am not sure that I have set it properly. I would also like to reduce the take-off speed. Previously the only way I could get into the air was to give it full throttle otherwise it just tipped over on it’s side.
1.) Can I redo individual steps of the setup procedure or do I have to start again and if so where do I start?
2.) In the same vein can I reduce “take off” speed which was previously unchanged. I have watched YouTube videos
where the flyer takes off gently and I can’t do that.
3.) The copter still has a tendency to “lean” backwards and unless I up the throttle it will tip over onto it’s back motor arms. Is this fixable using the trims, and do I have to adjust the trims before every flight?
I intend fitting a recently acquired G2D gimbal set and an SJ14000 camera and I want to make sure that the quad is properly setup and that I can fly it satisfactorily before hanging expensive equipment underneath it
If this is possible can you describe the steps I should follow please? Any and all help will be gratefully received
