    I just got a Phantom 2 with H3-3D gimbal and I noticed that when I leave the left stick in the center to hover, the copter elevates up and down slightly and doesn't stay in a hovered state. I waited for the green lights on GPS. Is there anything I am doing wrong or is this normal?

    What does "slightly" equal? It should stay within a meter or two of it's position when given no command. It would be nice to have it lock a position and stay but GPS isn't that accurate.

    If it's circling and hard to control you need to calibrate the compass. I'd recommend calibrating the IMU through the assistant software also.
