    So tonight I wanted to run a battery down so I setup in backyard and got ready to fly. After it was safe to fly I hovered a bit then just starting flying back and fourth no higher than 10 feet off the ground.....about 9min into my flight I did a full throttle ascend and when I did this it veered to left about 6-8 feet while going up.......I tried again and it kept doing the same thing. I have done this before and it has never veered like that....if I ascend slowly it stays straight. Has this happened to anyone before?????. It worries me

    That's wild. I wonder if it could be a bad/bent prop. Maybe swap props (corner to corner) and see if it drifts right.?? Just a guess. Please keep us informed of your findings. Thanks.

    Thats a good idea i'll try that. The props I used are brand new and I just balanced them...I RIT dyed them and one did feel weird when putting it on

    And also check to make sure your motor screws are all tightened.

    Checked screws, those are good. Going to try RC calibration then test it....then I'll try my original props...im hoping it was a fluke

    Mine when going about 50% full speed forward turns to the left, from what I understand this is a prop balance issue? Have not purchased a prop balancer yet so I have unbalanced props.

    The props I used were balanced.....first flight was great...next day it would veer...I checked balance again and it was fine..I calibrated the rc and am going to test again with 3 other sets of props. Check out walmart.com for prop balancers...i got a really good one for $23 when other places wanted $45 for the same one

    Try doing the rc calibration...you dont need the air craft on to do it..just rc and app...really easy and quick to do..might be worth a shot to see if it will fix your problem

    Sounds like a bad compass calibration

    Looks like the RC stick calibration worked. Tried with all my props and all is good. Thanks for all the suggestions guys!

    That's good to hear. I'll have to remember that fix if mine starts to wander.
