    I just got my mavic a few days ago. I updated it and took it for its first flight yesterday. I had a phantom 4 briefly before selling it to get the mavic. I found I liked using a custom stick layout. I've spent enough time playing first person shooters that that stick layout is too engrained in me. It's basically just mode 3 with ascent and descent inverted.

    Anyway, I set up my mavic this way but when I went to fly it all the y-axis controls were reversed from what I had set them at. Forward went backwards, Back went forwards and ascent and descent were not inverted like I had set them. I checked and checked that I had set them correctly. I tried calibrating the compass thinking maybe that was the issue. I tried it in the flight simulator and it was even messed up there too. Has anyone else run into this or would you be willing to test on your units? Using one of the preset modes works as expected. It just seems to be the custom mode.

    TLDR: setting a custom stick layout causes all y-axis controls to be reversed from what you set. In flight and in simulator. Can anyone confirm?

    Isn't software a wonderful thing (rolling eyes)?

    Haha! Yes so wonderful! I can work around it by flipping the directions for now I guess.
