    Hey guys, my first day with my phanton, well I love it, I just perform a imu calibration after walking around the house looking for a nice place to do it, a ceramic floor, check with an app for level and magnetic fields, everything seems ok, I also perform a gimbal auto calibration, I update the phanton 3 advanced to the 1.400010 firmware, because the 1.5 was too new for my taste

    Any advices? After this is ready to fly, buy is raining crazy outside...

    I'm very concern about a fly away, like is my worst nightmare so any advice will be greatly appreciated

    My feedback would be that a fly away is very unlikely. That was an issue with the older Phantom models, but not at all common with the P3. I never worry about it at all.

    I'm not saying to be careless of course, but if a fly away is your worst nightmare then I think you can relax a bit.
