    I've noticed on my Phantom 2 that it drifts when I switch from GPS mode to ATT1 or Att2 mode. If anyone has the same issue please comment or reply. If anyone has a solution to my problem please do the same.

    Detailed flight:
    Gps mode hovers fine. Switch to Att1 or att2 mode and it drifts to the northwest directionaly to the orientation to the drone. :?:

    Totally agree - this is normal behavior.

    I had no idea this was common when no wind is present, but I do live on the plateau area. So i'm going to assume there is winds in the higher regions of the atmosphere that the trees cannot even sway to.

    Even the smallest differences in Prop Balance, Motor Speed etc will result in drift when in ATTI Mode.

    Now that is a good piece of information. Thank you. Now how do you properly balance the props on a phantom 2?
