Question Hobby Zone Champ S +

I have been flying electric rc micros for years. I am embarrassed to admit that I can't keep the s + champ up in the air at all. I have tried flying it with gps features on and off and still almost impossible to fly it. It flies so erratically. I have re calibrated, turned off all gps features, turned them back on nothing works. Also, the rudder when I first opened up the box was deflected wildly to the left and didn't straighten out after binding. This is billed as the plane anyone can fly. It doesn't even come close to flying as shown in the Horizon Hobby videos.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Puzzled and confused

There is something wrong with either the plane or your transmitter set-up.
This plane flies good in typical RC mode.
I'm no fan of the gps mode as I've tested it since it first came out a few years ago. The system has improved a bit but as far as being a system that is accepted in an AMA flying field's not.
Bind it with gps off and fly it that way.
