20-30 degrees Drift. Still shot my video of Snow, Ice, and water.

Started to fly yesterday and saw immediately that my Spark was drifting 20-30 degrees to the right. I still shot the video but was getting some really funky angles. Is this an IMU calibration or controller calibration issue?

I just read over on another forum where some are attributing "drift" to the possibility of the IMU not being warmed up enough. Seems like most that are encountering it are flying in cold temps.

Interesting. I had not heard this but it's worth looking into. I also calibrated the IMU and it fixed most (not all) of the drift. I'll have to wait a couple months to see it it's all the temp.
THANKS
