    OK I just got my replacement bird about 4 days ago. I have been on 3 flights I think. 2 of them almost ended up with crashes and the video downlink is almost pointless. Something is wrong. Super wrong. twice it has tried to tip over upon taking off. Can someone give me the best place to upload these flight records to i can get some advice on what to do?

    I did upgrade to 1.9.60 right out of the box as thats what is recommended. I am thinking about downgrading if possible

    I'm not sure what your experience is.

    You might not be giving it enough thrust on take off. Try full thrust. Also, just before launch, you can spin the props faster than idle by easing up very gently on the throttle. The props will spin faster but the craft will stay on the ground. This gives you a head start on the full throttle. Then launch full throttle straight up.
