    Hey guys!

    I've noticed that over the months since I bought my P4 it's gotten so much less accurate.
    When it was new if you pulled the drone away from yourself it would fix itself and do everything it could to bring itself back to exactly where it was.

    I just did an experiment today where I calibrate the IMU and Gyro, tested to make sure there was no bias or interference, and did a test flight. The drone hovers and goes back to an area within 3-5 feet of where I pulled it from.

    This seems bad... P3 was better? Is anyone else having a similar issue?

    If it's settling back into a stable hiover I wouldn't worry about it.

    Have you checked / tested with new props?
