    Well finally got my 1.5 conversion done today,did calibration,compass calibration.checked and rechecked all my stuff,i was finally done and decided to go test it in my backyard.start up,fine. Satellite lock,fine,everything looked perfect.started motors,hovered about five feet off the ground,flew around a bit,and from here it all goes downhill,controls doesn't do anything all of a sudden,I'm heading strait toward a tree near the ditch,crash into the tree.I run over there,and of all the places to land it lands in the only part of the ditch thats not dried up yet,smh..so for now its taken apart drying for a while..any suggestions to save it,and any idea what i did wrong?
