Did you used Betaflight? If so, how did you get it on the FC?

Iceman774, I used INAV. Tried Beteflight and Cleanflight, but they don't support the GPS anymore on my SPRacing F3 Deluxe. So I needed to change over to INAV. It's pretty similar.

Just figured out the failsafe doesn't work with FlySky --> it always turns off everything, no matter what you program, and so the drone crashed last Saturday...
Need to reprint the upper part and reassemble everything But in meanwhile I had about 15 flights going perfectly. I just touched the wrong switch last time, activating the failsafe when the drone was about 4m heigh, and so he fell down...  :'(

But OK --> that's why we have 3D printers  ;)

Does NAV-POSHOLD works for you?

OK so maybe I'm doing something wrong...

Thanks for the quick answer! My drone is affected to “toilet bowl effect” and I really don’t know why. I tried to recalibrate the compass multiple times but the problem persist. How and where did you fix your GPS on the drone??

I put it IN the nose of the drone. Quite similar to your placement, but in the drone, not on the drone.

what is a toilet bowl effect?

Are you serious?
I have just re-designed it from scratch and uploaded it on thingiverse. I though it was good and useful for the community. You can upload it on thingiverse and i will create a "remix".
Dont be mad at me.
