    Hi All,

    As the title says really.
    Installed the iOSD Mini today and it fired up all OK, no problems and got the data on the FPV as planned. Brilliant.

    However on my first flight since installing, it wont fly level. It is 'right heavy' almost.
    The quad hovers OK, and seems to respond OK, but it certainly isn't level.

    Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

    Thanks

    Ben

    Most likely the cause will be the wind.

    Yeah I thought that, but I've flown in pretty windy conditions before and haven't seen it sit sideways before.

    Perhaps I'm looking for errors too much and actually it's OK.

    It is normal to sit sideways if hovering with a crosswind. I has to fly into the wind at the same speed as the wind to remain stationary.

    If it tilts in gps mode in one direction in steady hover, it is ok. It is balancing against the wind. To confirm, rotate 180 degrees and it should tilt the other way to hold itself against the wind.
