    Hey guys! I am having an issue with my vision 2 plus...

    On takeoff my copter is flipping, I have noticed that it flips toward the rear left rotor, or the front right rotor.

    I have not taken it apart or anything. The problem emerged two weeks ago, I was using it for wedding videography of the venue and in the morning I had about a 5 minute flight that went off without a hitch, 5 hours later I was getting ready to fly again in order to get different lighting and I turned on the drone, got the rotors spinning then attempted to take off and my copter flipped! About 2 months ago, I had it take a crash from about 15 feet up when my video feed went down and the blades clipped a tree.

    Any potential help or advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    -Tyler

    This often happens when the left stick (throttle) is not in the full up position on take off. You should never attempt to ease your Phantom off the ground (if that's what you're doing).

    Get a cold IMU calibration done.
    Your gyro and accelerometer is out of whack from the previous crash.
