    When I fire up my Phantom 2 vision on the ground it says its at 46 ft. Shouldn't it read 0 or 1 or 2 or something close to the ground?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Yes, it should. Suggest you do a full IMU calibration to start with and see if it cures the error.

    still says i'm at 42ft after calibration. Also I have one of the original flytrex's installed and that data is all over the place too. Stating I have flown on my last flight almost 450 ft up when I never went above 50 ft.

    That plus the compass calibration seems to have worked! Thank you

    MSL or AGL? Not the same unless you're at sea.
