    I have noticed my P3 Pro going in a counter clockwise circle when I first lift off and hover. Then it will stop if I ascend and descend a few feet both ways.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    That's the infamous "pre-flyaway" circle of death.
    Do not fly until you carefully have calibrated the compass and maybe even done a fresh IMU calibration. Check the compass connections. If it does it again after that, you may need to replace the compass.
