    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

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

    "The FAA’s Registration Rule violates Section 336 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act. We grant Taylor’s petition for review of the Registration Rule, and we vacate the Registration Rule to the extent it applies to model aircraft. Because Taylor’s 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.

    Have had some time on my hands lately, decided to give quads another try. I bought a Syma X5HC and got it in yesterday, I think I let the speed quads and little ones sway me too much in getting out of the hobby. I definitely like the slower ones. Super stable quad, nice that it auto-hovers. I'm not used to that, all of mine require manual control.

    Looks like the fagotry with "registering" your quad or RC aircraft is back. Too bad I don't give a shit.
