    Hi

    I have a phantom I and it won't hold position in gps mode. Once you take off the phantom won't hold position but will drift to the left.
    I have calibrated the imu and compass. At take off just the green light is flashing so that is good.

    Any ideas?

    Out of the box, my transmitter needed to be calibrated. One stick was off, causing it to veer sharply immediately on takeoff. Check that, too?

    Thanks, I will give that a try. But it was good. I never had this problem before.

    Make sure the compass hasn't shifted on the leg mount (not likely in stock configuration) as if it tilts slightly, it can cause that anomaly as well as rotations in yaw.
