I got a M2P today, of coarse support is closed, i can start it up, get ready for take off, but when I push the L stick to full throttle, it will not lift, can barely hear the RPMs increase. What could be wrong?

OP, is this your first drone?

After calibrating the RC, make sure that your controller is set to mode 2. If it is, and you feel comfortable, then try an autotakeoff.

This video might help:

I did the RC calibrate and checked the stick orientation, and it was bass ackwards!! set it to mode 2 and it worked.
Problem SOLVED!
Do you remember which mode it came in? Most of the drones I got from DJI come preset to mode 2...

The mode defaults to mode 2, but you can change it while activating the drone in DJI GO. Perhaps that's what the OP did (or unknowingly did).

The guy I got it from bought it new, and did buy dji refresh, he crashed it soon after getting it and got another with the refresh and when he got it, he put it up for sale and I bought it from him with the fly more package. I can see why he crashed it with the controls being bass ackwards!
You got that right!
