    Hi gang,

    We have been having issues with drift when we fly at slow speeds. It cannot hold a straight line with drift up to 7 feet at times. At faster speeds there is no issue we can see. I was told to set the bird to ATTI fly it just a couple feet off the ground so the sensors lock on. I was told at that point if you have drift it is an inspire issue. We have severe drift in ATTI when close to ground. Can anyone tell me if I am correct on my concern? Drift occurs in ATTI when only 2 feet off the ground is this a broken bird? All firmwares are up to date.

    Thanks smart people,
    J

    Try to do an Advanced IMU Calibration.

    I'd reccomend doing a full IMU calibration, making sure the Inspire is perfectly flat and level when doing so - preferably away from heat / cold / magnetic interference sources. use a spirit level and wedges under the landing feet to ensure the motors are level fore & aft, port / starboard and on opposing diagonals before performing the calibration this will ensure the planes of the rotors are correct when you do the calibration...

    Update: Spoke with DJI today and they asked to have the bird sent in for repairs. I will report back when we get her back.
