    I have a problem where it twitches then its fine for like 30 seconds then does it again.
    I have changed a stiff motor and esc but still has a problem
    Here is a link to it doing it.

    Looks like it's losing sat's and trying to correct when getting them back almost . Have you done an advanced Calibration ?

    Yep . I will see something like that when I have only 6 sat's as it will drift and when it picks up another it will jump back like that . Not saying that's your issue but just saying .

    Does it just do this when you first take off or is it constant ?

    Can you go somewhere else to fly?

    Lots of turbulence, maybe poor sat coverage due to surroundings and altitude.

    Me not sure what to tell you then .I would redo an advanced imu cal and be sure it was level and see if that helped .
    I have seen mine act like that on occasion with low sats but not that many .
    I won't hurt !! Might not help but not sure what else to tell ya . Maybe some more will see this !
