    Hello
    the phantom took a stumble, I re-calibrated, everything seemed fine, lift off without gopro is flawless,
    when I attached the gopro, it will tip and crash, if I help it and hold the phantom up upon take off it will fly perfect. : (
    it will also land soft.
    But it's frustrating for it not to lift off correctly.

    Any advice its much appreciated.

    Thank you

    Use about three quarters throttle to lift of level.

    Have you tried swapping one front prop for one back one. It worked for me

    If you replaced the props, check their balance...the only time I couldn't get mine off the ground without tipping was when I had on some poorly balanced props. After a little sanding it worked just fine.
