    Hey guys here is my dilemma and this could obviously be my lack of experience etc.

    I'm noticing that when I try to just let my bird hover and do slow tracking shots it tends to drift a lot and while I understand it's floating in mid air and then of course wind etc I feel like it should be a bit more stable.

    Thoughts?

    GPS issue?
    Take a look in the assistant at the numbers and see if they look right.

    .
    You need to explain exactly what you are observing.
    Without details, it's hard to comment.

    See the above post. Depending on conditions, the Phantom isn't "laser" locked on some railed course line and so some drift is normal.

    Without some video or a better explanation it could just be a matter of exceeded expectations for all we know.

    What exactly does "a lot" mean to you?
