    In flight, the only problem I ever saw was right before I crash landed it. It had a compass error for the last 15 seconds.

    So, what exactly doesn't seem to be correct in the flight log? Or, what is missing from the flight log? Please be as detailed as possible.

    The modes changing, the data loss, and it doesn't show the compass error which caused me to land kind of hard, and causing it to flip, it shows the motor obstruction when it flipped over.

    I never seen any problems with the data connection. Just the compass error at the end. I sent it back, the camera wheel was screwing up anyway and it was getting the shakes after the firmware update.

    I think some of the problem might be calibration before every use. But not before every flight, that's too much dancing.

    Sent it in on Saturday, received on Fri, not bad. Now how long does it take for them to look at it in California?
