    I have the dji phantom and whenever I take off it leans one way and it flips itself over onto the ground. I have taken my right hand of the controller and took it straight up and the same thing happed. I have calibrated it 3 times now and I still am having the same problem.

    Please help!!!

    Which version Phantom do you have?

    Could the props be in the wrong locations?

    Connect it to the NAZA Assistant, then run the motor test on it, perhaps you have a motor or channel that is reversed.

    I had same issue. I resolved it by shutting down removing the battery, reinstalling, and powering back up. Not sure why this happened. But I lost a couple props in the process.

    You didn't happen to have the lid off and put it back at wrong orientation? That would alter correct prop rotation. Check to make sure the "stripe locations" are facing battery opening.

    Thank you for all the help! It was flying fine before it was just recently that this started occurring. Thank you!
