    Seen we had an ios update so I did it and also went ahead and put 3.12 in bird . Was having issues with my wide yawing so I set it up with a piece of glass across the motor shafts as I have read about in here and did an advanced imu calibration and then went out and recalibrated the compass .
    No issues what so ever with flying down 1 battery with all this and as far as that Yaw trick... Sweet :D Turns both ways like on a pole and don't sling shot off like it was before .
    1st screenshot is where I had just opened app and was reformatting my card and saw 11 sats , then second was just out a little from my house with 12 sats .
    Just thought I'd share :D

    When in just a hover I would yaw hard right or left and stop and it would sorta slingshot off one way for just a little and then drift back . My table I had been using was off level just a bit so I took a piece of glass and laid it over the tops of the motor shaft and got it dead level before doing an advanced IMU calibration and it fixed it . There are several threads in here on it and this is one .viewtopic.php?f=19&t=35131#p324122
