very first surface it went from was my kitchen counter which I know is perfectly level as one of my carpenter friends designed the kitchen and I watched him level it out.
I also tried getting it to take off from my hand last night (started surfing youtube videos the second I was having problems as youtube is what convinced me to get it in the first place lol) and it flew into my chest
like I said, I'll get some video this afternoon (should be interesting holding my camera and the controls...and possibly the copter as well all at the same time) to show my issue.
I came up with another idea reading through the comments on the video I just posted but I'll wait until I confirm it first this afternoon. god I hope its as stupid and simple as what I think it is haha.
