    Yeah, update firmware. Lots of info here or on youtube. Do a compass calibration if you haven't yet.
    But there will always be some slight drift. Practice!

    Have you even connected your Phantom a single time to the Phantom assistant software and performed advanced IMU calibration?
    Have you calibrated your transmitter in the Phantom RC assistant and Phantom assistant?

    If not, do that and see if that helped.

    As mentioned above - whenever you see your Phantom drifting or behaving odd, perform a complete IMU calibration, preferably an advanced IMU calibration (Tools page of Assistant Software) followed by a compass calibration.
