Which flight mode settings to use for a simple manual flight

I have my Pixhawk 4 and S500 quadcopter set up with all of the configuration steps in QGC however I am unsure of my settings for the Flight Modes. When I am in Manual mode, press the safety switch on the GPS, then arm my quadcopter the motors start spinning but after a few seconds stop. After this none of my transmitter inputs seem to do anything.

Here is a video of my flight attempt

Is there a step I am missing? I’d appreciate any help, this is all pretty new to me. Thanks!
