That connector is unique to only that quad. Don't purchase batteries for a standard X5-c. They will not work. Must be for altitude hold X5-HC or HW

Yea. Not a great wind flyer. Nice job. Surprised you went that high. Wind is way stronger up there. How did you get video out of the phone into U tube

Just fast enough. Very predictable. Next time you fly in wind make sure it is in Speed 3.

Some quadcopter manuals don't describe such calibrating procedure but there is always a note to calibrate the gyroscope when the quadcopter is on the flat surface meaning the firmware assumes the quadcopter is really on the flat surface during the calibration. By changing the angle of the quadcopter before calibration it is possible to compensate whatever is causing an error (for example if gyroscope IC is soldered with the tilt).

Here is an excerpt from Eachine H8 manual:

Quote:
Troubleshooting:
After re-calibrate, micro four-axis still drifts in suspension.

Answer:
Put the micro four-axis in a horizontal plane, pad several layers of paper in the azimuth of drift (the tickness of the paper depends on the degree of the drift), then the accelerometer can be calibrated on the horizontal plane, so as to solve the drift problem.
