    Hello I wonder if any of you could help diagnose my Visions behavior. It has literally decided to give me virtually no height control, it will let me take off, a minute or two of hovering and it is up and down like a whores drawers! Usually down and no amount of opposite stick will arrest its decent, this of course results in a crash every flight, it also seems virtually incapable of holding its position without input from me. It is completely up to date, calibrated etc with at least 7 satellites.
    It's killing me please help.

    Sounds like a bad GPS or Main Board internal barometer. How do your numbers look on the IMU cal and Compass RAW data?
    Does it calibrate correctly?
    Have you messed with the GAINS at all ?
    How long have you had it. Has it been updated to latest firmware?

    If it wont maintain altitude, you may need to contact your retailer or vendor for repair or replacement.

    Thank you, yes it is currently up to date in every respect, I calibrated the IMU even though the figures looked fine but still just does not want to climb. I give it full stick and it barely climbs, all lateral control responds as normal.
    The app however is showing correct altitude.
    Does any one know of a UK based repair specialist?

    From DJI Website:

    I cant speak to the quality or reliability of any of these vendors, perhaps ask your fellow countrymen who frequent this forum. You could Private Message Pull_Up he is knowledgeable in this area.

    Good luck
