Looking at the top of my P3 4K I am sure that one of the CCW motors does not seem to be running as fast as the others (it certainly seems to look that way when viewing the props from above). If I take off to hover, the AC starts doing circles around some hidden point almost like the old tether balls in the school yard (now I am dating myself...).

If one of the motors on the P3 is not turning as fast as the others, could that cause the AC to be hard to control and drift while hovering due to the other motors trying to over compensate for it?

Or would this be more of speed controller issue?

I can take and upload a video of it later if need be....

Found the answers I needed in the following thread:
**VIDEO** ANY IDEAS WHY IT WONT HOVER STABLE??

Will try the motor cleaning, and another compass calibration then hover test again.
If that does not do it, then I will replace that one motor.
