Were you using the pixhawk to fly?

no, I flew with the stock setup to make sure I knew how it was intended to work first. Would have measured the hover pitch, but the blades are too small for my pitch gauge. Haven't gotten around to taching it at hover rpm, but knowing the throttle setting is sufficient.

analyzing the video, i think i needed throttle at 30% pitch and rpm at 2100 mS pwm
for take off, you see this in the hopping

vid link is private. do you mean 2100 usec pwm on throttle? perhaps your ESC needs calibrating, but mine worked fine with Spektrum DX7/OrangeRX without it. Does 30% pitch mean 30% of full positive throw, with neutral being zero? How many degrees is that, and did you try larger pitch values?
