"Helicopter moves around or topples over during lift-off"
-Cause: Helicopters of all sizes are always most unstable/vulnerable during take-off as they must fight a force called "ground effect". The apparent effect occurs because the ground is pushing back on the air being forced down by the helicopter. As the helicopter moves higher the force pushing back become less. Anything above 8" is considered "safe".
-Fix: Use more throttle/speed to get out of the "ground effect" zone. Doing this quickly will result in easy to control take-off behavior.
-Cause: starting surface is carpet or some type of fabric.
-Fix: Start from smooth surfaces as some fabrics stick to landing gear causing uneven balance during take off.
