    I'm in St. Louis and would be interested in meeting up somewhere when the weather gets nicer. I would love to know where you all fly as I have started to run out of ideas.

    I just upgraded from a P2V to a P2V+ and live near Pomona, Illinois in the Shawnee Nation Forest with wide open fields and amazing views. I often get up to STL so I would be more than willing to fly with you guys there or here.
    Here is a not so great example of a flight off my back deck with the P2V.

    I know much more about trouble shooting Phantoms. Some translate to the Fs, What kinds of issues are you having?

    It Flys fine but when I go to fly it I have to recalibrate it everytime even just changing the battery. Most times I have to do the calibration twice and I can start the motors and fly. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you Tim

    So when you say calibration are you talking about an IMU calibration, a compass calibration or a controller calibration or all of the above. If it is just a compass calibration it may be related to a possibility that the F series might not "store" the compass calibration without power.

    It's when I do the compass calibration. How do you calibrate the IMU

    There was one time that I was flying and was able to change out 3 batteries without having to recalibrate it.
