    Back yard is a bad place to test fly-- go to an area with a wide open space and try another. In the middle of a neighborhood surrounded by homes there is all kinds of radio and wifi interference that could have a direct impact on the flight characteristics. Do the video in an open area and see if it improves.

    Wow.. thats bad! 2 things come to mind.. do an IMU calibration. And try turning off VPS. And finally.. test it in ATTI mode. But do this in a large open area and at a low altitude. You might even try it as if you are hand launching. Just dont let go.
