    Hey guys,
    I just got a used Phantom 2 Vision and have some issue with the controller.
    When I move the right stick down and inside and let go, the props seem to spin out of control and the only thing that stops it is if I do CSC to turn the motors off completely.
    I was flying it the other day and it started to spin out of control and crashed. I put it all together with no issues and everything works just fine but I'm thinking that could have been the cause for the crash.
    I tried this inside while holding down the chopper so I don't really know what exactly it would do if I let it go but this just doesn't seem right.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Try calibrating the remote controller like this:



    Note: This video is for the P2V+, but the calibration process is nearly identical.

    There's another way to do it here.

    Once you confirm all is calibrated, etc... be aware you CANNOT evaluate flight controls, motor response, etc., while the quad is held down or operated without props.
