Sticks not centered after adding P2 props

    I recently upgraded to P2 props on my P1.1.1, and have seen the benefit of the added flight time. One challenge I am having with them is that I now get the double green flash while in GPS mode which means "sticks not centered". The Phantom is also a bit more twitchy (especially on descent). Could this be corrected by changing the gain settings? When connected to the PC, the sticks go from -1000 to +1000 as expected. The warning comes and goes during the flight. Any advice is appreciated.

    Current Setup:
    Phantom 1.1.1
    PMU V2
    Zenmuse H32D w/ GCU & GoPro 3B
    AVL58
    Mini iOSD

    Run the channel calibration in the P2 assistant software.

    +1 to stick cal. Re: twitchy decent - those P2 props are agressive and you have to be extremely careful on decent as the prop wash is much greater than standard props.

    I have run the channel calibration, but I still get the quick double green. Any other ideas? Thanks

    It's also worth noting that I switched back to the P1 props, but still get the sticks not centered error flash.
