Newbie at tuning
#1
Hello guys!

I just got up in the air a little over two weeks ago and I'm so excited to join the community. So far the only thing I'm still lost on is tuning the quad. I get some weird jerking motions when I accelerate and whenever I reduce the throttle to 0 while flying (flip or just dropping quickly) my quad freaks out a bit and jerks around when I bring the throttle back. I was just hoping to get some feedback on this issue and also ask for some assistance in tuning my quad.


Frame: Lisam 210s
FC: SPF3 clone (whoops)
ESCs: Racestars 30A
Motors: Emax RS2205 2600KV
PDB: Matek
VTX: FT48X 5.8G 48CH
Antenna: Aomway
RX: FrSky X4R-SB
Props: DAL 5045C 5''
here is the BB log

and here is the Log on a BB reader

If I left anything out please let me know!
Thanks guys

This one is older but can still be very helpful once you are in the ballpark.

One thing that helped me a lot is to realize you have to play with things.
I've watched endless videos on tuning and wanted to understand the whole theoretical part of it for the full 100% before I tried it.
What helps a lot is to make sure you can adjust pids easily (pref via Betalfight OSD) and just start fiddling with it.
Try increasing P in steps, see what happens. Do the same for the other terms.
It really helps to just get a feel on what happens. You might even solve your issue by just experimenting with different settings.
This also helps with getting the right feel. If you follow a Youtube guide your quad will probably fly fine but might not fit exactly to what YOU judge as feeling great.
By finding your own way in a sense you make sure they tune fits YOU, which I think is the result you want.

The behavior you describe sound like prop wash, you will likely find a way to make it more acceptable when focusing on D-term.
Check out my videos @ http://www.youtube.com/Marcelfint and let me know what you think!

Update:
I have some free time this weekend so I think I'm going to try out what the guy in the video did. It will just take awhile since I'm running Cleanflight and need to take the top plate off to connect the quad to my laptop.
