    If the phantom has had a slight bump or 2 then the horizon-roll axis may me be off. This then causes all the remaining axis to misalign every time it tries to level out. Fix asap before it starts doing the gimbal dance therefore up tearing the poorly designed flimsy ribbon cable.

    You need to realign the flat part of D in the press shaft.
    Do an Advance IMU calibration when you think you have found the level and then apply some wicker 290 Loctite to prevent slippage from the poorly designed pressed-shaft. And do the IMU calibration when the phantom is cold. It should only take 2 minutes and wait for the green tick.

    Further details as per below..
