    Also wondered if it was possible to reverse the y-axis on the left stick, so that when you push down the aircraft goes up (like in a plane). Didn't see a setting for this...

    Try using the custom setup in the stick modes. ;)

    Yes that's an option and it was mentioned in that thread I linked to earlier.
    The key take away is that custom inverting the stick changes how you'd perform a CSC.

    Oslo-I have my left stick inverted and I am still able to start my bird. The stick control to start is just different on the left stick. Instead of left csc to bottom right or left, I have to move left stick to upper right or left and right stick direction is still the same.

    So if you invert left stick y-axis, to start motors you would be: left stick = upper right, right stick = lower left. And to stop motor you you would left stick = up for 3 seconds. Right?

    Yes. Exactly as I noted in the post I linked to earlier.

    That's correct. There are pictures in the post I linked to earlier.

    My problem is that I have some other toy quads that won't let me do invert left stick, so it's going to really screw me up if I switch. As used to I am (flying airplanes, FPS games) to pulling back to go up, I think I will stick with up to go up so I don't get confused between drones!

    It took me little while to get used to, but I really enjoy the inverted flight control. It's best for me when in fpv. But I feel for you on swapping around other quads, keep it standardized across all quads or you will end up crashing the most expensive one 1st.
