The first time I fly, position holding is perfect in all axes.Subsequently (after I put it to another mode and return it to loiter [?]), the altitude does not hold.  When the stick is centered, it…Continue

"One feed I saw suggests it was not brought in by Colin, but he did an amazing job at not skipping a beat. I don't know the whole story I guess."

"@Sgt Ric - I wondered the same thing but my comment is now missing. Regardless, 3DR copters aren't designed for flying indoors so it was probably a good move. Hopefully there we some 3DR products on display though. "

Crazed Maniac Flies Drone Through Congressional Hearing!

Actually it's 3DR's rather sane Colin Guinn, who did an excellent job presenting his material and seemed to impress Chairman Lamar Smith.Colin Guinn, an executive with 3D Robotics, released the unmanned aerial vehicle during a hearing on the subject of drone development, much to the amazement of the committee’s chairman, Representative Lamar Smith (R., Texas).“I was hoping you’d fly it around the whole room — not just one location,” Smith said after the drone landed.“You said no haircuts!”…See More

I've checked all the below and are correct.

- is the software configured for X and not + copter?
- is your "front" orientation correct on your board?
- is your board mounted right side up?
- do you have the CW and CCW props attached to the correct motors?

I've checked the manual from kkmulticopter and http://rcexplorer.se/page14/kkguide/kkguide/quad.html
