"The copter had real problems with compass variances and EKF in the red.
A lot of vibration as well which either contributed or raised the issues.
When it comes to EKF problems it is out of my area.

Thanks for sharing your experience with your APM flight controller. I have reloaded the firmware, but I had a major time with setting up the compass. My theory in thought was that it may of been magnitive field from my gimble, because I didn't have that problem until I installed the camera gimble. I completed a couple of flight with no problems unit I made some adjustments to the PID on the gimble after that things changed. I am planning on making a test flight without the gimble
because the gimble took a beating after the crash, but repairable.
