so this problem started about a week ago. When i try to take off normally (slide to take off) it just spins up the motors and flips over. When i hand launch it, it takes off and flies maybe 5-7 feet back and holds its position there. When i try to rotate the drone using the on-screen controlls, the drone does one of 2 things: it doesnt rotate at all, or it starts spinning uncontrollably.

trouble shooting steps i have taken so far:
  1. restart drone
  2. calibrate drone (both in center of gravity calibration and IMU calibration)
  3. replace propellers (making sure of clockwise and counterclockwise orientation)
  4. make sure motor shafts are not bent and motors are spinning freely
Has anyone else had this problem, and is there any solution to it?

edit: spelling

Agree with faulty props or wrong placement. Can do hard reset by holding off/on switch 5-8 seconds then do both calibrations
