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.
