Well the other day I was flying in the wind and took my DJI F550 up a few hundred feet. Wind took it and ended up flipping it over and aimed toward the ground in a hurry!! Broke 4 arms off and after I rebuilt the copter I've been having issues with hovering.

The hexcopter acts like it gets "surges" of power, and climbs a couple feet and stops without me doing anything. Acts really erratic, and when trying to land, it is virtually impossible to make a smooth landing. I'm thinking the NAZA controller got a little rattled from the crash, just wondering what everyone else thought before i purchase a new one. Or if there is any trouble shooting I could do.

Thanks,

Does it do this in MAN and ATTI mode, or just in ATTI mode? I ask for a good reason, I promise there is method to the madness.

Yes it does, I updated the firmware yesterday to see if that was the issue. It was not, still very inconsistent hovering, still jolts up and down out of control.

With the naza pointing in the forqward position try putting a strip of black electrical tap on the left side of the naza. Sun light has the same effect if it hits the naza on the side.

WyDiablo, that's good. That's what I was actually getting at. Unfortunately if it does it in MAN mode, it's not the baro sensor, so te tape will not help. It sounds like a damaged accelerometer. I would get with Robert at DJIUSA.com and see if he will let you send it to him for repair/replace.

Hey guys,

I flew my hex yesterday and everything worked just fine. No issues what so ever, the only thing I can think of is I left the hex-copter in the trunk of my car overnight. Its been cold up in Wisconsin lately, and maybe the NAZA just needs to get to temperature of the conditions you will be flying in? Every other time I flew it and was having the issues, I brought it from a warm area to a very cool area. Do you think this could have been an issue?

Very possible. The Naza has a baro sensor in it that's very sensitive to temp and light. Although it mus have been really cold to affect the MAN too unless DJI has it in the code to utilize the baro for something while even in man mode. No way to tell without seeing design spec though.
