    If you were getting RAW values of X= -250, Y= 20, Z= -545 & mod=1370 when all the other values are middle range & OK(this is after advanced & basic cal & compass dance then course lock) (Z= -545 is my concern) would you say the compass has a fault?? This is on a new FC40 that gets a j-hook of about 3.5 meters when stopping & left hand course error in GPS mode, Atti mode it's a laser, no indication of Sat. loss,any thoughts??
    Other question, when stopping (stick to centre)from forward or reverse flight it "slides" about # or more metres before stopping back to hover, would I look at the gains & which one would affect it ?? Thanks

    Did try it 3 times, haven't been able to track down that video(they won't open) so watched it & tried for 30 mins, I got a tease when it went down to -485(just in spec) tried to get it down further & it all went tits up & back over the(or under) the -500, taking it to where I bought it from tomorrow. Thanks for the vid.
