    Hi guys

    I can't figure out or find through search. What possibly the issue?

    After compass calibration it always switches into green then 2 fast flashing reds.

    I put it on landing spot then it looks like it sometimes disappears when over 6 sats are acquired. Not 100% sure though.

    I also noticed birds tends not to stop and hover well after left right moves once you release controls it keeps the direction for more than I think it supposed to.

    Thanks

    Its normal. When you complete the compass calibration it goes back to showing satellite status. Reds disappear after you obtain the lock.

    Thanks, so it seemed.

    Something is very strange with my unit tho. I seems that it maybe looking GPS lock when flying. I tested it today not windy at all. It kept swaying time after time in GPS mode and giving itself more than I would say supposed margin when hovering.
