    Hi guys

    Before two weeks my phantom v2+ drowned in river and stays in the water for 10 minutes

    I tried to dry it with hair dryer and it is completely dry then i turn it on

    Every thing is working perfectly but when i turn on the propellers for taking off and it takes off but, suddenly it turns upside

    down and falls down.i repeat it 3 times and every time same thing happened.

    And the propellers keep running until i turn them off..

    any ideas ..?

    Have you had it plugged in and checked IMU and compass values etc? All the basic stuff.

    All your light flashes normal?

    Your first mistake was thinking you could dry it with a hair dryer. You need to take apart dry it out , blow it out , then put in a bag of rice for about a week. Without trying to start it , battery too. If you turn it on its probaly screwed.
    Everyday there a post about this. Put in a bag if rice and pray.

    Go to Assistant ->Basic ->Aircraft and make sure 2nd box (QuadRotorX) is selected

    Good call.

    You could also test each motor individually as well. Spin each one up in turn using the assistant software to check that they are all running freely. Do this with the props off, naturally...
