    Did you do the IMU calibrations along with the RC sticks and compass calibration before taking to the air?

    Looks and sounds like VRS - vortex ring state... it's totally normal.

    For someone new at this what you did flying at night was not wise. That video looked more like toilet bowl than VRS or a flyaway. Do yourself a favor learn how to fly during the daytime and above all re-calibrate both the RC controller and your P2 including an advanced IMU no a level surface before continuing.

    If you are flying in the phantom mode in the P2 software the center position on switch S1 is not Atti even thou it is marked that way. In order for the center position of S1 to be in ATTi mode the P2 as to be in naza-m mode and when it is in ATTI the rear LEDs will switch from slow flashing green to a slow flashing yellow. If necessary go back and read the users manual v1.4
