    Ok guys, I was flying my P3P 40-50ft high this evening, nothing special just maneuvers back and forth, figure 8's and nose in and my right stick would not control the drone in the aft/down position. all other commands /sticks position worked fine. I was able to land safely by flying back to me nose in. I recalibrated the compass and it started working fine again. I upgraded firmware to ver 1.7x close to 2 weeks ago. Not sure if this is an issue with firmware or not? I was beginning to trust this thing and was thinking about testing the orbit and follow me, but I think I'll hold off. Anyone else have this happen?

    Check if RC calibration gets you the back stick working.

    I was able to calibrate the compass and that got it back to working. I will also check the RC calibration. Thanks!
