    I'm completely new to this and for some reason decided to throw myself in at the deep end and buy a Nighthawk 280 - seemed like a good idea at the time!!!

    Needless to say I am slightly overwhelmed and learning an awful lot!!!

    I have gone through setup and configured using cleanflight. The motors are responding as they should and the receiver is behaving as it should (in cleanflight) when I move the sticks.

    So far so good!!!

    However I just tried my first flight and the back end lifted up, but the front end did not - as such it did not take off the ground.

    I haven't quite got my head round modes yet, but I've set it to horizon.

    Could somebody either point me in the direction of what I might have done wrong, or let me know the most basic setup to get it flying?

    Thanks very much!!!

    First thing to do is to check motor rotation and correct prop placement.
