I noticed today my drone lets go when flying fast
ie the direction does not hold like the tail letting go on a heli

I just completed my first flight and exhausted the battery. My initial flight was a lot of hovering and maneuvers in a small area to become familiar with the drone’s response to the controls. No noted yaw problems, but fast is yet to come. So far, everything is well. No crashes…
