    It's ANOTHER windy day in Oklahoma :( , so I am just going through calibration (non-NAZA mode) again to get a better understanding of things.
    I just bought a Phantom 2 v2.

    The percentages I see are as follows... (note this is the default settings)

    BASIC: pitch = 125%, Roll = 125% Yaw = 120% Vertical = 140%
    ATTITUDE: pitch = 260%, Roll = 260%

    1) What are these for? The way it looks to me, I am afraid of the 260% and would like to set it to 150%. What happens if change both 260% to 150%?

    2) Is it really true that if I am messing up, that I can let go of the levers and the phantom should just hover in place? Note: I am in normal mode but will have 6 GPS satellite links ( LED blinking slow green about 1 minute after compass calibration).

    3) I plan to just try keeping it around 20 feet high and no more than 50-100 feet away from me on the first flight. any advice?

    Rob ... don't mess around with pitch, roll and yaw unless you feel that you're better qualified to than the DJI engineers that designed the Phantom.
    Most flyers never have to touch them.
    They should be set just fine - leave them alone.

    Yes .. let go of the sticks and it's like hitting the pause button.

    Advice? It's a lot easier than you think.

    Ok thanks! You set me straight!

    I will just wait until the winds die down and then give it a shot!

    Many folks here adjust their gains from time to time.

    The following page can give you some insight:

    Though the Phantom Naza may not have all the parameters available for adjustment, it will help with the one's that are.
