    1. I had this installed on another Phantom and it was fine. I had to switch out the Phantom2 with the newer version.
    2. The newer Phantom 2 is the latest build, designed for the H3 3D. I put the GS setup on this.
    3. Now the mystery. The altitude is off by 5 meters. Basically I have to add 5 meters to all my presets for the waypoints.
    4. If I don't compensate it fly into the ground at 5m or less.
    5. The really curious thing is that it auto-lands just fine.

    Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

    Another observation..the longer it is on, the more inaccurate it becomes. It seems to gain 5+ft/minute, which means, in the air, it will lose 25-50 ft. Over a 5 minute flight on the autonomous setting.
