    Ive been flying my bird for a couple of months now and Iove it. Unfortunately, when I'm hovering and regardless of height, its starting to drift slightly - like I'm touching the controls ever so slightly.

    Ive calibrated the IMU on a flat surface as I thought it could be a flight control issue but its still happening.

    Now, it did fall over when I tried to take off recently - do you think one of the motors could be ever so slightly damaged or do you think this is a prop issue?

    Start with the easiest thing IMO hook up your spare props

    Calibrated IMU and Gimbal. Think Ill need to put new props on to be sure whats causing the issue.

    Calibrate RC ( transmitter Sticks) this is a separate calibration from the IMU and Gimbal:D:D

    It's pretty vague on how to calibrate the RC. Just move the sticks in the direction? How many times, how long, does it have to be perfectly lined up or once you hit 100% in any given direction it's good?
