    Hi folks,

    I’m currently experiencing an issue with my Octo. I find it moving slightly from left to right when I move forward. It’s very small but definitely noticeable. I’ve calibrated the compass and RX on the Wookong-M. One thing I haven’t done recently is to calibrate my sticks on the Dx18.

    My gains are pretty much “stock” and all at 100% but I’m not sure if that’s the issue. Should I try my gains at 80%? What else should I check?
    I appreciate any information.

    Thank you once again!

    Do you happen to have a GPX file from one of the flights that you could post -- that would tell us a lot about what is going on.

    Thanks

    Hi Andy,

    Please correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think there is a way to pull that information from a Wookong-M system?

    Oh....sorry, Maxis. You are correct. I overlooked that you're running a Wookong system. You wrote it clearly, and I clearly overlooked it!

    I'm afraid I don't know about the Wookong system, but I think other forum members do. I shall thus crawl back into my box.. :)

    Andy.

    I thought I had seen something about flight logging with DJI flight systems. If you use the iOSD the you get flight logging. Seems to be ground based using the DJI iOSD assistant software. Here's a video showing some of the functionality.

    Thanks for finding that Gary -- someone asked me about DJI data logging this morning.

    Andy.
