    I've been having this problem for a while now, maybe the last 10 flights or so.
    Go through all start up procedures (calibrate the compass, wait for all satellite connections, etc.),
    Take off and hover at about 10 feet or so for a good minute and check controls
    And the bird keeps drifting upward slowly. After it gets to about 20' on its own, I bring it back down and it does the same
    thing. I'm in Naza and flying in GPS mode. I've never touched the Gain control from the default 120%.
    Would adjusting the gain fix my problem?

    Thanks!
    Jeremy

    I would say try an advanced calibration first.

    I had a similar problem, until I upgraded to the newest version. Then it became much more stable and held position, including altitude, better.
