    Re: Phantom 2 rotates while holding position while idle in f

    Rotates as in yaws (changing the direction it is pointing) or rotates as in goes a little forward then a little left, then a little back, then a little right? The first is not normal but could be a matter of calibrating the controller to the Phantom. The second may indicate a need to calibrate the compass.

    Check the calibration of your sticks using the assistant software. Make sure the left stick is at zero when you're not touching it. Have you updated firmware on both the Phantom and the controller?
