    I recently had a crash with my phantom, The internal parts seem okay, i removed the gimbal and the fat shark module to try and test it

    Everything seems to be working, The only thing is when it's running on idle the engines slowly start to increase power until it tries to go up..
    The sticks are balanced and centered in the software.

    any idea what might be going on? Thank you!

    This is 'normal' if you flew, just landed, and have not shut-off the motors (yet). Not caused by a crash or other rough handling.

    I have never seen it happen if you have just power-up and started the motors with out flying first, then it should just shut them down after a few seconds.
