It is pretty troubling reading all these fly away posts. I am not sure what to think about it. There are so many factors involved. I bought my Phantom in July 2013 and I love to fly it. I have had zero issues, even with a complete tare down, paint job and rebuild. I didn't even re-calibrate after the rebuild and she is rock solid at hover. Let's see who has the oldest Phantom here. Did you have any issues? Purchased July 2013 - No issues to report currently.
