    Had a nasty crash with my Vision and am having troubles... I replaced all of the parts that appeared to be damaged- camera mount, props, cables, but now it spins in circles when I take off in GPS mode. Could the GPS unit or compass need replacing?

    First of all did you do an advanced IMU calibration after the crash? Always worth doing it even after a relatively minor bump just to reset the IMUs view of the world.

    When you say spinning do you mean yawing on the spot, as if you pushed left stick left or right? Or do you mean the aircraft travelling in a circular motion, as if it was trying to follow a circle in the air?

    What I meant to say was it is yawing in one spot. I thought I had IMU'd successfully, but updated again and everything works great- Thanks for the help Pull_up

    Most likely the compass. Did you try to reset it with a magnet?
