I've had to recalibrate my splash pro several times now because It's very unstable in flight and basically unable to hover. Landing is just as bad and I have no idea where to go next.
It is six months old (but might have only 30 minutes of flight time) if that. I'm scared to fly it because it's so unstable. I used to own a solo which I sent back so I could have a water proof drone. But I'm starting to think that I made a mistake.
I once experienced a situation where the quad would not hover..if the throttle was not a full up, the drone would drop like a rock..landing was a tricky. It was a second flight right after the first ie., land, change battery, take off. As I recall, I just packed it up and went home. I don't recall doing anything specific to correct it. I can only suggest re-calibrating, and also check the settings using the flight assistant software. I always do the GPS calibration dance before I fly. Be sure the switch settings you're using are correct. The functions at the switch positions were changed.Sorry I wish I could be of more help.
I had the exact same issues including the "toilet bowl". The toilet bowl caused a crash. Sent it back for repairs. They did repair the damage to the shell and to their credit reduced the repair cost. I have yet to have the SD Pro make a flight after receiving it back. They offered assitance but I'm a bit frustrated in dealing with the whole issue and have declined the offer hoping I would see a fix on the form.
The technician said it was due to improperly installing the new camera/drop hook. No instructions were provided with it when it arrived so I had some help through this form to install. They provided a link to my unit flying after the repair was completed. I'm baffled how they were able to make it fly but they are the experts so....
Please post what ever your findings/dealings are. I would like to eventually get this thing flying again. Ironic, I'm saving for a 3DR Solo at the moment.

tyuyrt: Hello, I just installed a new GPS with lid - it only works when the lid and cable are dangling down the side of the drone; as soon as I close the lid the lights flash yellow red and green and I cannot take off. I'd appreciate any insights.

chris: I had to go through all the settings in the app (computer) and reset some settings as well as reset some of the defaults. After that I was good to go again.

chris: marksdrone: just had the same issue with mine. It may be the accelorometer that you need to calibrate first and then do the compass after that.
