    craft will not maintain altitude when i initiate and kind of descent the craft will not hover. i can adjust the descent with the throttle up but if i let go of the controller the craft will descent at a slow but dangerous fall out of the sky. and suggestions.i have recalibrated with the naza program. mind you the i just to the unit this month off of ebay

    Did you calibrate the controller and the Phantom?

    You need to calibrate both the IMU with the unit level and then the remote. After that you should see a big improvement. Use the assistant plugged into the PC. Check you tube video to see what and how if you need to.
