    Hey all,

    I've been flying my DJI P2V+ for about 6 months now...no incidents...no crashes...just nice and easy and nothing to crazy. I recently upgraded to the new firmware and now my left stick has an issue. Calibrate...home lock...take it up about 30ft to check everything...right, left, forward, reverse all good on the right stick. Now, I push the left stick gently to the left to pan left and as it starts to pan the crazy bird shoots off to the left for about 20ft before I can get control of it. Now, I gently push the stick to the right and as it starts to pan right it takes off (pretty quickly I might add)to the right. I've used the software to do a full calibration on the controller and the Phantom but the left stick is still acting kinda wonky. Any thoughts? It's just kinda nerve racking to lose control for that brief period.

    Thanks, Ric

    Have you done an advanced IMU?
    It's always a good idea while connected to the computer, especially after any updating.

    Also check the RC controller that you are in mode 2 and not mode 1. In the assistant software make sure all the sticks are in normal and not in reverse.

    If he was in Mode 1 he'd know as [only] throttle and pitch are swapped. Yaw remains on the left stick.

    Compass mod values are probably off try a imu calibration and then a compass dance to recalibrate the compass.
