    I installed the motors and updated the firmware. When i do the motor RC stick command to start them, from the manual, they don't start. I am not using the pilot app, has this happen to you guys?

    Recalibrate the sticks - they are more than likely not seeing 100% throw.

    Okay. How is that done? I don't see that in the user's manual. First time using a drone.

    I assume you are utilising the DJI Go App?
    If so, this is well documented over the forum.
    Using the search feature will render useful information.

    I am not using the DJI Go App yet. Could the drone be flown without the App?

    It can but how will you get your telemetry data or calibrate the compass (although that can be done manually) or check your mod values?
    I think you need to do some reading before going airborne!

    Yep....I do. Thanks. I'll do more research, and get the App.
