    Hello all :)

    My Phantom has started acting "strangely". If I'm around 10' and below my Phantom starts going into "landing mode" or losing altitude. I think if it gets below a certain height it will try to land? Maybe?

    GPS mode, atleast 9 sats

    But I get nervous trying to hand land it having to readjust the altitude while trying to keep from needing stitches by hitting a prop lol.

    If I'm above that height it seems to hold its altitude.

    Any ideas what might cause this?

    Have you ever crashed or had an extremely hard landing lately? When is the last time you did an advanced IMU calibration? The IMU cal has to be done on a completely level surface.
