Help Needed / Drone does not take off using dronekit-python

Drone : X500 V2
Flight controller: Pixhawk6c
Firmware: PX4
Python library: dronekit-python
We would like to use dronekit-python to execute takeoff.py shown below. However, the motor starts to rotate, but after that the motor rotation speed does not increase making the drone unable to take off. Do you have any suggestion?
I have one more question. Is any way to make an emergency landing.
Thank you very much.

Hey @gtoyac we don’t support DroneKit in PX4, have you looked into MAVSDK-Python?
