@ne0fhyk it is drifting to another direction. to keep it steady do i need to set vehicle home location by using this code -

VehicleApi.getApi(drone).setVehicleHome(homeLocation, null);

or something else?

@Tamajit there should be no need. The home location refer to the vehicle take off location and is used in return to home scenario, not for holding position.
Can you try controlling the vehicle using Tower, and see if the same issue arises
There might be something faulty with your vehicle gps lock

@Tamajit yea you can, although some parameters might need to be updated.
@rmackay9 do you know the parameters to update to allow flight without a rc controller?
