    What is a reasonable drifting "area" with Phantom 2 in an open space with very little wind with calibrated compass ang 6 sattelites connected?

    The official specs in the manual are:-
    Code:
    Hovering Accuracy (Ready to Fly)     Vertical: 0.8m; Horizontal: 2.5m
    Although mine is much less than that.

    xgeek's post of the official specs are right.

    Most of the time, with no/little wind, my drift will be more like 0.5 to 1m horizontal. It will be much better after the first 2-3 minutes of flight (the Naza's IMU has to warm up).
