    Flown today and still flashing orange, in GPS mode, but not stopping in hover, carries on drifting ,

    quite wobbly (technical term ! ). just plugged it in to the computer, everything looks OK, but compass is showing 00 00 00

    so that maybe the problem, any thoughts gratefully received.

    Cheers

    Either your compass or GPS is unplugged/bad, it isn't getting any data from the GPS.

    Found out last night that the lad had had the lid off the phantom ( to have A LOOK! ). So went up to Quadcopters in Chorley ,
    They soon fixed it, somebody when the top was off had reconnected the compass lead into the wrong port, I wonder who?
    Culprit in school at the moment probably good job! Quadcopters is an Aladdin's Cave , All sorts of craft including massive ones they use for the BBC.
