..........what causes the altitude indicator to be off so badly? My Platinum RTH's perfectly. Reacts to controls perfectly, but registers altitudes as much a 100% off when under 25 feet! Sure, you can watch the ground on your screen with the camera facing straight down, but it sure would be nice to know that the altitude you read on the screen is at least somewhat accurate!

Does it show 0 before you take off?
It senses altitude barometrically Maybe a dirty sensor?

I will check next time I fly. The drone is spotless, so it's not a dirty sensor.

@45er Did you get all of the clear plastic protectors peeled off the sensors when you first got it?
