    I was flying this eve in fpv mode out of my backyard in an everyday neighborhood with 1/4 acre lots . So I get 3 or 4 houses down and Yaw with nada movement. The video is great though but nothing happens from any sticks. It just sits there and I take the goggles off and watch it. After a bit, it boogies back over. So I'm thinking it's in fail safe and at this point and go to manual and bring it down to a hover and go back to gps. Just fine for a bit and go back up. I went back to same area and sure enough the same thing happened. Zero control. Very weird when that happens. It just sits there. Then it came back again with me doing nothing. LOS existed in all cases and I was never more than 150m from the drone.

    I'm not digging the distance these radios have compared to my old analog radios and I got a Frsky radio today. I hope it helps but just really weird stuff today. I can see how fly aways happen now.

    Interference from home wifi or A/V sender possibly.
