    Hi All

    Flying my new P2V+ and its not hovering in place. Although I have GPS lock (steady green blinking), the copter drifts all over the place, like going down the drain. No compass error shown on the FPV screen, and no error lights (red-yellow, blink) Figured maybe it would be a good idea to re-calibrate the compass. With rear light blinking green. flipped S1 five times and never got steady yellow LED indicator. Tried turning P2V+ on and off, same thing.
    Any ideas why it's not going in compass calibrate ??
    Much thanks... Regina

    Found it...
    After loading in PC Asst, drivers, found was not getting any data from the compass. Traced it down to a loose connection on the compass it'self. Re-seated and seems to be working fine. Also was able to do re-calibrate.
    Always learning with this.
