I noticed my P3P drifting pretty bad while hovering 4 feet off the ground today. I would move left and right slowly and it would move forward about 10 feet.
I may have found a fix for behavior.
I powered down the phantom and powered down the remote and Pilot app.
I then just powered on the remote and Pilot app and proceeded to calibrate the remote.
When I powered up phantom and hovered again it was rock solid.
This same thing happened to me when I updated to the current firmware. After a stick calibration the hover
was solid again.
Hope this helps someone with the same problem.

I did the same thing about a week back, but the issue has come back. Busy discussing with DJI presently. Will update if they give any real solution.

I should do it again in the mean time. I have loads of errors, so did not want to fix them temporarily.

First flight after update, mine started drifting towards me with no commands and a solid GPS lock.
I will give this a shot when I get home and it will hopefully resolve it!

Thanks, I'll have to try this. after installing the new firmware in my P3 pro, it won't stay in hover mode at one position, but instead veers right or left almost uncontrollably. I recalibrated the IMU on a level surface. Recalibrating everything including RC. to see if this fixes the problem. Could my compass be malfunctioning, and wouldn't that show up in the Go app?

Did you calibrate the compass in an open area away from phones,metal etc.. P3 compass is more sensitive I have learnt an a calibration away from everything including houses fixed any problems I had . An check comp mod is around 1500 after calibration

As a matter of fact, I was going to try this tomorrow. I am near houses, had my phone nearby, and my truck was fairly close. Thanks.
