    Second time flying in the house to check the vps function and it was very unstable I had to keep correcting the phantom . Does compass interference override the vps and ignore vps readings . I have left off and I think after my second attempt playing with it I might just leave it off for good . Thanks for any imput

    No. Compass is for heading. If the bird is unstable indoors, you're flying over a surface that's reflective or porous.

    I've noticed this too. It seems like ATTI mode only, VPS doesn't seem to be doing anything...
