Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

An interesting one to be aware of just in case it happens to you

I went out flying again today as it was a nice day.

Flew one pack and everything was great.

So i plugged in the second pack everyhing looked great.
Video feed looked good naza gave me all the right visuals.

I took off fast to get a bit of height. Went to bank left and the craft seem to tilt right. so obviously gave it more left stick to compinsate.

the craft banks right more ovbiously travelling at some speed by now.

It then dawned on me the my left and right controls seemed to be revered.
Well somehow i managed to wrestle with my brain and landed a bit heavy with a slight flip but no damage done and the ground was soft.

I took of again line of sight and everyting seems fine. Got some height put on the goggles gave some left stick and again the thing backed right.

As you can imagine this confused the hell out of me.

I landed the craft line of sight looked through the goggles only to realize the big oak tree and the smaller oak tree had swapped position.

Some how the FPV feed was being mirrored in my goggles.

I disconected power and plugged it back in and it was fine.

I just thought i';d make you aware as up to now its not something i';ve ever considered as a potential flight risk.

From now on i';ll be doing a quick visual check with a point of reference to make sure what i see on the screen matches reality :)

That will be a camera problem probably, what flight camera were you using ?

Most security / FPV cameras have an option to mirror the image..     question is why did it switch it on.. could have been a voltage spike..  dry joint on camera.. to think of a few reasons..
