    Lots of people complaining about how it used to be precision accurate on older firmwares. I'm pretty sure you are just spoiled now and expect it to not move a mm. Fact is that the props are likely unbalanced, you need to do an IMU calibration, gimbal calibration, or there is normal wear/tear on the components of the p3 such as motors, gps unit, compass. Most drift is likely due to the compass degrading due to unknown and accidental contact with magnets. Some tablets and phones have magnets in them... The compass is not expensive, its like $15 I think. Its a pain to change it, but I'm about to order my 2nd one already since I've noticed it has degraded, last change was like 6 months ago for me...
