    I flew my Phantom at the ranch the other day looking to get some nice sunset shots. I thought the camera tilt looked off so I brought it down to a 8 ft hover and sure enough it was leaning to one side.
    When I got home I read up on it and it seems a pretty common issue. I ended up following advice and doing a basic IMU calibration and it fixed the problem.
    Its still flying good still lots of fun to have, its just been so freaking windy latley I can't get it out much
    It's not what you look at that matters... it's what you see.

    For those who don't want to read through it.

    "The FAAís Registration Rule violates Section 336 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act. We grant Taylorís petition for review of the Registration Rule, and we vacate the Registration Rule to the extent it applies to model aircraft. Because Taylorís petition for review of Advisory Circular 91- 57A is untimely, that petition is denied."



    So, is it really as simple as it sounds?

    Maybe, maybe not. Reading the entire doc, that SEEMS to apply only to LOS flying but they seem to waffle also.

    To be fair I've only scanned it since I never registered and am not affected either way.
