    Hi
    I have P3A with FW 1.3.20. I have notice, after update, it can not hover precise alttitude (VPS off).
    Before update, it was rock solid.
    I have also problem with alttitude reading. Before take off it is 0 meter, but after 15 min flight, alttitude is 15 meter too high on ground level (home point). This issue came also after update.

    And yes, I have (cold)calibrate IMU...

    Just a thought, but did you calibrate it near metal objects right after the update? That could make it seem like an issue with the update.

    I have the latest version and the P3A as well and mine hovers preciesly and the altitude reads fine.
