    Did you do a level and compass calibration after going to a new locale?

    I just know the magnetic field varies spatiality and temporally, just like the Earth's gravity field. Which means your sensor calibration values won't be perfectly tuned when you move to a new area... Could be off by a lot and cause strange behavior.

    I rebooted several times went through the recalibrating a couple of times nothings helped .yet .open the controller up one guy thought it might be loose wires I have narrowed it down to the drone .I have several controller that are new so I pair a new one up with the drone still goes crazy when I take off it’s fine until I touch one of the controls then it goes crazy .kind a like you said somethings fighting against it Self not a real high tech guy didn’t know if there was something I could change inside the drone a board or some kind of controller or just replace a drone

    Can you post the flight log files (tlog)? That might help us figure what's going on sooner than later.

    WinSCP is the easiest method, imho.

    I’m not real computer savvy but maybe I can get somebody to help me do this

    A video will show us what it's physically doing, but the flight log will tell us exactly what is happening internally with the Solo.
