    Try doing another IMU calibration indoors on a level surface. Check the surface with a level and make sure your Phantom is not disturbed during the calibration process.

    It could be damaged/bent propeller.
    Replace them to test if you have an extra.

    EDIT:
    I was thinking, is there a recommendations for how long OEM propeller can serve and when it should be replaced to new one? I`m sure they do not last forever.
    I`m using the same propellers for 8 months now.

    Jeigu tu netrankai to drono nesienauji saku, lapu, zoliu. tai kas tam propusi turi nutikt? vienintelis momentas jei be galvos uztraukineji tai susivaro sriegis.

    What, the best I could do using google was,

    If you netrankai the drone nesienauji branches, leaves, grasses. This is what has to happen in order propusi? the only moment where headless uztraukineji susivaro this thread.
