I flew the Mavic the other day, and it went to 3 feet as usual at the beginning. I then pushed up on the left stick. It then started to float up continualsly very slowly. I tried pulling it down, but just kept going, so I turned the craft, and then pulled on the left stick. It did respond to come down, but very slowly. I had 17 satilites, and gps lock.
I've now updated all firmware and calibrated the rc and drone. But still doing it.
Any help guys.

I'm no expert, but if it were mine I'd do both an IMU and compass calibration. Make sure you check both for interference before taking off too.

I believe there is a controller calibration as well. I don't actually recall doing it, but I may have when I unboxed mine. Something to look into.
