    Intermitent GPS issues?

    Flies normal in medium mode with the aception of air brake not working properly. It does lock out all control but drifts wherever the heck it wants to FAST.

    Film mode also wont hold still drifts way out of controll FAST.

    The only happens sometimes....... but a LOT more often than I like.


    Any ideas?

    sounds like you need to give Traxxas a call? the things you are describing are pointing to an issue with the transmitter. you could do a factory Tx reset then rebind. it might do some good, but if it doesn't... they would be the only ones to know what to do.
    Fly fast, Fly hard, and forget about the outcome.

    What firmware are you on, and have you ever done a complete calibration?

    Newest firmware, just replaced controller.

    Compass recalibration seems to have fixed it. More test flights needed.

    It's your compass calibration. What happens is the GPS shows a position change and the software sets a course to correct its position. If the course is incorrect due to incorrect calibration it can wander. Most of the time it will wander in a circle.
