I have update my P3A excited to the new firmware all went smooth when i tried to fly couple of times after i took off the drone seem to go easy side ways , once it came straight towards me and i got a cut on my chest.:) . I just don't feel confident enough to fly anymore as it drifts sideways after take off , i checked the propellers and the arms of the drone all seems to be in order. Anyone having these issue?

No.....IMU settings are different. On the app. you need to go to MC Settings/Sensors and scroll down to calibrate.

This was posted after you said you'd googled it, so you seem to be heading in the right direction

i did the re-calibration of the imu and seems to be a bit more stable it still shows to calibrate the compass maybe after i do that would be 100% working

Any time it drifts, recalibrate the IMU. Should hold solid in one spot.

You need to do the calibration when the phantom is cool. NEVER do it after a flight or even if you have on idle.
Let the phantom cool for an hour (go charge a battery).
The moment you turn it on > go settings > sensors and run the IMU calibration immediately.
The cooler it is, the less warm up time is needed and the quicker the IMU cal
Make sure you do it on a levelled surface on all axis. This will prevent your phantom from doing wide yaws.

Putting it in the fridge first for about 5 minutes works great and also helps the warm up time the next time you fly
