    I just got a phantom 1. Flown it a couple times with no problems then the 3rd time a gust of wind smashed on to a tree and crashed. I still get a green gps light. Everything is normal but when I go to take off it leans forward pretty good then shoots straight up then down. Won't hover, won't stop wanting to take off. I've read a couple threads but haven't found what I'm looking for I guess. Recalibrated, used magnet and recalibrated again still the same thing. So fun to fly and had no problems but now it's frustrating. Thanks in advance!

    There is a tendency for them to start increasing revs if left ticking over, I think it's to do with the internal barometer heating up and giving confusing readings.

    Hard crashes are never a good thing.
    There is a sensor onboard which is an accelerometer and after a sharp bump it can stick.
    The solution is another sharp tap on the shell to un-stick it.
    Worth trying anyway.

    Connect to a computer and make sure IMU and controls are calibrated if you haven't already.
