    Hey all, I was on my 65th flight last week. I had taken off from a courtyard in a winery, then landed and shut everything down at around 50% battery. I started everything up as I have done before. I waited for satellites I believe I had 8 or more. I took off it went up to 30' then with no input in went hard right. I could not get it to roll to its right I could only slow it down. It got maybe 100-150' away then twitched and all was normal. I did not have the time or the thought to flip it to Atti. Finished that flight and one more that day with no problems. I have also flown two more times with not even the slightest issue.

    Any insight as to what happened?

    it just has to be a gps signal, or GPS receiver glitch. Wouldn't you think? Let's hope it doesn't happen again.

    I hope it was just a one time glitch! I should hook it up to my computer and do a compass recalibration.
