    I cant figure out why my phantom 2 occasionally vibrates and drifts when I attach the zenmuse 3D and go pro 3. It had a failure once and I sent it back to DJI where it was fixed after almost a month.
    The only personal change i have made was changing the mother board and put it back where it was working fine. Anybody with advice as to why it drifts and vibrates only when i attach the zenmuse 3D.
    When detached I must say the Phantom flies fine.

    Have you done an advanced IMU calibration since the change of the main board? The flight controller is the brain of the aircraft and needs to be calibrated so it knows what is "level". A wandering phantom in hover is typically indicative of the IMU needing calibration or needing to re-calibrate the compass. Connect your Phantom to the computer and do a calibration via the Assistant Software. Be sure that your phantom is on a flat/level surface and away from magentic interference when doing the calibration.
