Hi Chris-Today I checked my throttle setting to hover and found that I am hovering at about 23% throttle, which is very low and well below the dead zone in the program. I have seen that when hover throttle is below dead zone, the quad will descend. I loaded the 2.9.1 firmware this afternoon and it appears that the throttle_mid is adjustable and I may be able to set my dead zone down where it belongs. I will post when I get the quad set up again and can try the altitude hold.

I am using 2832 1000kv motors and 3s 2200 batteries on an aluminum frame. If the dead zone adjustments in 2.9.1 work you might check to see how much throttle you are using to hover. It may well be below the dead zone also!

I'm using 1200kv motors and 1, sometimes 2 in parallel, 3s 2200 batteries with a aluminum and craft wood frame. I'm having a bit of a play now with some settings and will see how it goes. Thanks for the reply.
