    I don't see anything attached to show your values, but this is what I look for on my P3:
    Gyroscope Mod should be around 0.00
    Acceleration Mod should be around 1.00
    Compass Mod 1400-1600.

    those seem way off they should be more like "oso's" figures so recalibrate again 2-3 times and retry those numbers before you fly again...
