    While in flight my bird will slowly lose altitude, I can easily correct but it's never done it before. Any ideas

    Did you do the latest update? That seemed to have solved the problem for many.

    I watch for down drafts all the time. When I fly a straight course, sometimes I get a wind gust from the left and then from the right. I have to compensate for these. They seem to overwhelm the GPS. Watch your altitude when flying FPV. A down draft could hit trees
