so i notice that my altitude reading is off....It kinda jumps around...but i had the same problem with my phantoms and just learned to live with it....I will have to take it to a different location to see if it still happens...anyone else experiencing this?

Yes mine is way off also, sometimes worse than other times.
My Phantom was off but it was consistently off by about 10 feet plus or minus.
The H is all over the place with the altitude reading. LOS is important when flying low with this bird.

On my first flight weeks ago, it stated I was 300 feet up, and I said, no way, I couldn't have been much over 100'. But since then for some unknown reason it seems about right?????

Mine is often at -25' or so when I come back and land at the same place I took off from. It will reset to zero if you kill and restart the motors.

Let it acclimate to the environment. On sunny days the H body will heat up; this affects the barometer.

Notice as it's booting up, the Alt resets to zero. After a few minutes, reboot the H. Take it up for a few minutes, land and see if it resets to zero.

DJI has a heater in there's to help keep it constant.
I wonder if Yuneec has done the same?
