    I've have my p3 for about a month and it seems when I hover low it's all over the place? It use to stay in its spot when I first flew it but now it'll dip, move left and right? Any ideas or suggestions to fix this? I've calibrated the compass and that did I seem to work?

    in the flight app and calibrate that as well. If that is off it will affect your orientation as well.

    If the imu cal doesn't work it could be the new firmware if it started after you updated. Could possibly be unbalanced props too.

    Excuse my ignorance but how do I get into the imu? And if the props are in balance how do I fix that?

    The imu calibration is in the pilot app and you can get a prop balancer for 25 -30 bucks on amazon .
