    Ok.. I have search the site and could not find anything that fits this problem. I just upgraded to the latest firmware last night. I recallibrated the compass and tried to fly tonight. The camera starts off pointing forward, everything looks good, then it slowly starts moving downward until it is pointing straight down. I can move it back with the roller on the radio, but then it slowly returns to pointing straight down. Everything else seems ok, any suggestions? please... any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That sounds like a hardware issue. It might very well need to go in for repair.

    Did you try calibrating your remote controller?

    Agree with @msinger sounds like a RC calibration issue. When doing the RC calibration it will ask you to roll the dial.

    To me it looks like a connection problem or a leaky capacitor on RC. If RC calibration doesn't fix it, send it for repairs.
