    Have had my Phantom 4 for a couple months now. I love it! Been getting some great video of the beach and sunsets (still need to learn to edit). I have logged a ton of flights......in doing so I may have become a little too confident in my flying abilities. Last weekend I was flying around the Montage in Laguna Beach and thought I could fly right back into my parent's room. Let's just say it didn't go well. There was no damage to the body, not even a scratch. However, there is definitely something going on. I went through a checklist and inspected for cracks, motor damage, gimbal, etc. I did the following calibrations, IMU, Compass, Gimbal, and Remote. Now to the problem.....

    While in any mode, when I fly to the left or right and try to reverse direction quickly the Phantom hesitates. It used to be fluid shifting from left to right. Now, the motors seem to pause before continuing in the desired direction. Here is a video I took.




    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.
