    Was flying fine most of the day with my P3P ... During the last few flights of the day I noticed it pulled and drifted a lot during takeoffs, and did not hover great either. Also, when I reviewed the video tonight (after copying to local hd)...at times it was very choppy and even froze a few times. No crashes and have only flown for a few weeks now. I just saw some vids on how to upload to healthydrones... Any suggestions? I did not calibrate the compass during the last few locations... But did not travel too far between those spots.

    Even if you haven't had any crashes or hard knocks, it sounds as if it would be a good idea to do an IMU calibration and gimbal calibration to see if that sorts out the drifting problem.

    I would think that a compass calibration error is the main cause for the drifting issue you are experiencing.

    The problems with the video is something else. It sounds more like a computer issue - are you sure that your computer powerful enough to handle 4K UHD?
