    Try pushing both sticks in towards the bottom middle at the same time.

    go into the assistant and check your stick directions. Under the r/c tab the should all read norm. Also try calibrating them while you're at it.

    Yup, now try calibrating your sticks. Essentially click start under the stick read outs and move the sticks around to the edge of their extents for about 30 secs. Then click finish. This video explains it better than I can.



    Its on a mac but the method will be the same

    Sorry im not sure i understand. When you push the left stick up it should indeed increase the power going to the rotors. That's how it flys up... Can you post a video?

    Push up is slow, push down that fast.

    sounds like a calibration error.

    Check the stick calibration again. Make sure you're moving this sticks to their full extent. Reversing the stick direction in the naza might help too. While you're at it id check that the phantom is moving in the correct directions for all the sticks... (hover and make sure the phantom moves as expected)

    Once you calibrate the sticks on the RC controller you also have to do the same thing in the Phantoms software. You also mentioned that the RC controller is in MODE 1 and it should be in MODE 2. Also make sure all the sticks and X1 are the normal position and not in reverse (REV).
