Hi All,

I did an advanced IMU calibration on my Phantom 2 today...right after I did a compass calibration. I noticed that the Phantom doesn't hover in place...and when I apply some yaw it starts drifting. I've included a video of it happening...just wondering if this 'normal' behavior?

I applied yaw at the 34-35 second mark and it began drifting. I had to put the phone down in order to get control of it again..

wind speed is about 7-10 MPH

It looks blustery and turbulent there and as thought you do not have good GPS.
Do I see red flashes in the rear LEDs from time to time?

That is Due to no fly zone area. 5 green plus 1 red is no fly zone...i had 6+ satellites

Is the fence steel.

It looks like the handrails on the stairs are (rust at bottom).

I would do another advanced IMU calibration and be sure it was level and away from anything electrical as possible .
Just me :)

Yeah I'm with Dirk.
Do an advanced IMU calibration and use a spirit level.
Then redo your compass calibration in a suitable location.
