s and im having a hard time getting the results I would like from google searches and youtube about PID tuning. Im using cleanflight.
I fly an angle mode because Im learning still and I plan to get out of it once my simulator comes in.
BUT for now:

I have 2 problems, your help is greatly appreciated.

1: My quad drifts in the wind very easily. How can i fix this? Heres the catch. In PID tuning, the P is the only thing changeable in angle. So how do i increase the I so it drifts less in angle?

2: When I release the stick, it just keeps drifting and drifting. If i throttle forward and release, it keeps going. Even if I do this going staight into the wind, it will keep drifting in that direction. My P mode is set at 11.5 under the angle catagory! Im not getting any vibrations. What can I do for these two? Please help, THANKS!!

Oh yea, I have active breaking on my motors. Would this effect it?

I think a lot more info is needed to diagnose your issue theses things can be aggravating even a loose screw or wrong mounting of the flight control balanced props. Center of gravity I would go back and make sure your balanced and redo all clean flight and accel recalibration I'm pretty sure that was my end of building after a year was when I began to tune or attempt to lol. Great learning experience but I like flying more than tweeting and fixing so I went with TBS equipment them boys know what their doing and I don't so if that helps I wish you good luck

In angle mode you will keep having drift issues in the wind. Angle mode only corrects for the level of your quad not winds. I will advice you to learn to fly in acro mode. You can lower the rates and increase the expo a bit. The thing is when learning in angle mode, once you gained the confidence to fly in acro, you will have to learn to fly all over again.
