Hello guys, can anyone tell me why on the height osd display i keep seeing vps info (incorrect readings of 2.5m on actual 80m height) going back and forth from the actual barometer/gps calculated height?
It doesn't affect performance much when the craft is high up, but I don't trust flying this way. When I am down low I might get very small height hold flunctuations but nothing alarming. The bottom sensors are completely clean and undamaged.

Could be :
-since you are over water (i have read that can cause issues sometimes)
-dirty sensor
-sensor going bad (had you had any crashes) or defective sensor

I am sure others will chime in just wanted to help get you started.
