    When I push my direction stick straight forward, the phantom flys forward and to the left. It was hoving in a large circular montion, but it seems to stabalize after hovering a few moments. Almost like it has to warm up.

    Is it possible, that there is something that is installed improperly causing it to fly forward and to the left. I have replaced the body?

    Thanks for the help.

    Any ideas how to fix my forward to the left flight, when trying to fly forward? Blades have been balanced.

    How far to the left does it go?
    mine kind of does the same over long distances,. still haven't quite figured it out.
    try flying in ATTI mode perhaps?

    aside from doing compass and advanced calibration, not sure if there's more that can be done.

    Mine was drifting to the right. I did Advanced Calibration (even popup message said "not required"), then went to field, Compass calibration (360° dance around and nose down).
    Since that, no drifts at all, just hover in place.
