Hey guys!
I’m kind of new to fpv drones and I had a tinhawk freestyle before but just switched to the diatone r349 3 inch 4s quad and I have been having some trouble. I just flashed my fc with the newest fw on beta flight (4.1) and then I did a hovering test in my room and punched the throttle just a little bit about 30% and it took off full speed uncontrollably into the ceiling and fell on the floor. This happened twice now and I’m scared to take it outside. Does anyone have a clue what could be going on? Thank you!!

Did it hover at all or just go to the moon? 30% throttle is a lot on that thing, it's way too much quad for indoors. It should hover around 10% or 15% (or even less depending on your settings)

When a quad goes to the moon we check:

Motor order
FC orientation
ESC protocol
Do you know how to check these settings?

Did you read the release notes for 4.1?

i hovered with about 10% but I punched it like 30% to do a little jump and it went completely out of control into the ceiling. I don’t know how to check esc protocol.

Here's a BL heili config for chrome
To use this you need to have the props off and a battery plugged in. No battery and the ESCs won't read.

You want to set your ESC protocol to Dshot 600 in betaflight:


I got it from this doc, it's long and deep but very valuable

You also might check your receiver endpoints:

I know it's a lot at first, but you'll be rolling through this stuff in no time
