Should I calibrate?

I was linking my Tello up to the WiFi Extender. It works! I was flying it inside and the Tello took a pretty hard bump. Afterward, when I take off, it slowly starts to drift backwards. Do I now need to calibrate something?

It’s not going to hurt anything.
UPDATE: I ended up reading more on the Forum here and I believe I found the answer: LIGHT. I just tried flying the Tello in outside light. It was stable with no drift. No calabration was needed. The Visual Positioning System need a lit surface below to give stability to the Tello. Should have read the Forum first. DOH! 🤣

If it doesn’t have enough light in the room it will drift a little bit. Mine will stay put with very little light which I was kind of surprised.
