    Just got the Phantom, have crashed it a few times already (good thing no passengers aboard). Right now the problem is that the craft keeps turning in the air even when I'm not controlling it. . . what causes that, what do I do about that?

    Thanks!

    Connect to your computer, run the NAZA software and do Advanced Calibration.

    ..but if you've had a really bad crash, make sure nothing got bent. or you might have to buy a new shell.

    Do not forget to calibrate the TX too.
    You may also want to check if the antenna is out of position.
    Check if the motor shafts bend.
    Upon power up, if you can not get GREEN blink with no RED or 1-3 RED, then you may cracked the GPS!
