    Hi all, I have a phantom thats about 1 year old (no video or anything like that.
    After a crash (didn't seem too bad) it started to just move around with the smallest breeze, it will not stay in place.
    the compass dance didn't help and I was told to recalibrate (sp) it by plugging it into my computer.
    The problem with that is, I have NO SOFTWARE. I do have a usb cord that came with the phantom but I have not a clue what to do or how to do it.

    is there a phone number, or a place to take it or what????

    I bought it on amazon so I don't really have a store or hobby shop I can take it to.

    Any help would be GREATLY Appreciated

    tom (the old guy)

    Thanks for the response. New problem, you're talking WAY over my head (not your fault). Could you elaborate please?

    Like I said, old guy.

    The manual at the first link I provided contains a lot of critical information you need to know about your Phantom, and describes how to connect it to your PC and use the Assistant software I linked to as well.

    Once you're familiar with the info in there and are able to connect to the software, it'll be much easier for you and/or us to diagnose the source of your problem.

    When you get to the point of installing the software, you will also have to install that driver I linked to, which is what allows your PC to talk to your Phantom.
