    I know this is probably an issue with me more than anything else, but...
    Every time I fly, the video from the Inspire 1 is amazingly smooth with one exception.

    If I'm flying straight on with an object and have it framed perfectly, the heli kind of tracks left and right, not flying in a perfect straight line. I watch some of your guys' videos and they fly so straight and smooth...so I have to ask, do I need to learn how to fly? Calibrate? or something else?

    Any tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Another tip if your referring to video is to switch the camera to free mode where it will stay very close to the direction it stared in regardless of small ( or even large) movements off straight.

    If you were flying in fpv mode it's probably the wind causing the lean...

    I do fly with it on free mode. Here's a video to kind of show what it does.



    I know when I was flying my Phantom, one of the main causes for something similar was when I was in GPS mode and it would start subtly pulling the copter in different directions.
