The other day I was flying my Air2S and as I was flying it I was constantly battling the drone wanting to increase in altitude.  I was rapidly rising in altitude and I was having to constantly lower my altitude.  I was flying my drone in sport mode around at varible speeds depending on wind.  DO you think this was due to winds or do you think there is something with the drone I should be looking at?

I would have thought the first thing to was upload the log to PhantomHelp and have a look at the VPS height reading to see if the drone thought there was something underneath the drone.
If it doesn't then post the URL for the PH webpage here.

Have you tried a controller calibration?

Hello, there. Thank you for reaching out. May I confirm if you encounter any prompt messages on the app while flying? Have you tested in a different environment for further testing? You may also consider calibrating the IMU and compass for further checking. I hope to hear from you soon.

Calibrate the compass ??
That cannot possibly have any effect on the issue described.
Why is it that the moderators here know so little about DJI drones?

It had nothing to do with the wind.
What you need to do is to look into the recorded flight data.

Go to: https://www.phantomhelp.com/LogViewer/Upload/
... where you'll find instructions.
Follow those and you will get a summary report.
You can post a link for the report here.
Or just post the .txt file.

And ignore the suggestion to recalibrate anything.
That's their standard reply when they have no idea at all.

Where you fling quite low - sunny conditions - over asphalt/concrete/grass/water or open air at altitude?
