    After updating to latest software, Imu and compass calibration
    I flew today over a lake. No wind, water was very calm.
    Flew about 2 feet over the water. Tried with oa on and oa off,
    P4 was very erratic. Kept rising about 10 feet and was drifting a little bit as well. When not low over the water, it is rock solid.
    Wish dji would let us turn off VPS.

    With the Litchi app you can turn off VPS.

    I'm having a similar problem. Drone will suddenly drop a feet or slide over a few feet.
    Let me know how you sort it out.

    If your t talking about actions it's taken due to the Obstacle avoidance system being on, you can turn that off, with it on I will attempt to climb sometimes over water.

    After seeing that amazing video of the guy who lost contact with his drone over the George Washington Bridge that then used Obstacle Avoidance to make it home safely by itself, I would be nervous about turning it off. But thank you.
