    A mate has just rebuilt a P2v

    When it powers up it seems that the quad doesn't want to stay level and flips over

    If you hold the quad in your hands and power it up and tilt it forward or back its as if it doesn't know how to level itself

    Tried an imu calibration still the same
    Reflashed the naza
    Calibrated the controller on tx asst and phantom asst

    Only thing I can think of is that he has a naza 1 inside and not a naza 2

    All motors are wired correctly and spin fine

    if you got a good IMU calibration on a perfectly level surface, it might be a motor that's bad, or could it be the mainboard not mounted level in the shell?

    back in the P2 days i remember folks tipping on take off not giving it enough throttle to launch properly.

    Could it be a bad ESC?

    Seems that my mate can't follow a simple wiring diagram or he may be colour blind as he has one of the plugs in the Naza back to front lol

    Was going to say... he has the M1-M4 upside down on the NAZA module.
