Metal interference

Hi everyone, yesterday we had an internal inspection of a tank 28m height 10m diameter. We flew without GPS however there was lots of turbulence. When landing the 2 last meters the multicopter started to fly almost uncontrollable. We had 10 flights and 1 almost crash. The tank was complete metal. Can the flightcontroller be disturbed by the metal? Is it actually possible to have a stable flight near metal structures without GPS?

Wow. That's an environment I would want to fly in and run equipment experiments on. What were you using?

The only thing that will be influenced is the mag, and that's usually not in use without GPS. Even then it would only mess up the yaw axis. Chances are that due to the surroundings, there was simply lots of air turbulence from your own prop wash that messed with it.
