OK so took my little baby up on its maiden flight. Calibrated the compass, had 7-8 satellites , on beginner mode. Just was testing the basics on my flight abilities. Noticed though when she hovered a wobble developed. I was not inputting any commands with the R/C. The wobble was within about a 3 ft radius.There was absolutely no wind what-so-ever. It basically kept its station within the radius, drifted a little. Wasn't sure, but it seemed like it was struggling to maintain its hover. Never went over about 10 ft.

Is that normal? How would one correct it if it wasn't?

Thanks guys....

Did you calibrate the IMU?

With only 7 to 8 sats. and a bit of wind it could move around like you described.
Also a lot of us turn off the vision system as it is primarily for inside flying.
