    Hi there,

    I was using my P3P today and calibrated my compass at 2 separate locations and afterward at each the sensor readout was still around 1500 I thought I read it should be no more than 1200 but the P3 flew fine on these readings,

    What's considered acceptable and is 1500 normal?

    Thanks!

    1500 is the magic number for the P3's compass mod reading.
    You're good to go.
