    So I went out for a flight did one battery flew great! But upon landing it tilted back hit the pros and I quickly turned it off, after I put a new battery in I tried to lift off again but now it tilts toward the back and hits the props before it can take off. I tried doing the compass dance and calibrated fine but tried lift off with same results. The props seem fine maybe some minor nicks but nothing really bad. Any tips?? This was only my second flight.

    Where did you start and land from ? Would it be possible that you have a lot of steel within the concret ? I have seen simular effects starting from the top level of an parking house ... Seems to be an compass interference ...

    Are both your switches on top of your radio in the up position? This happened to me as well.
