Is my eyes playing a trick on me or is the drone really descending? I was using active track on this boat and I didn't even have my hands on the throttle. I panic when it looks like the drone was descending? I looked at the flight record and it didn't look like the height changed at all.

It will only descend when ultra sonic's are active. I don't recall exactly but that is up to about 30'.

I checked the logs and the IMU altitude and vertical speed stayed the same. Not sure if that is what I should be looking at? I also took off at high ground so I'm flying well below the ground level.

I wasn't getting any ultrasonic sensor issue, most likely just that the drone started getting closer to the object and it look as if the drone was descending?
