    out today with my mate and his phantom his takes off and it instantly has a locked in hover in p mode
    mine takes off and the wanders around a bit both direction and height for 15-20 seconds it had 16 satellites in p mode then it it locks into the hover is this a fault or a setting not right calibrated compass and imu before flight
    any ideas
