    Hello everyone,

    I know this topic has been issued many times and i can say i have almost read every aspect of it but..
    I still don't actually understand how this compass works in detail.

    I have had my phantom2 V+ for a couple of months now and i have only calibrated the compass once.
    This was when i took it out of the box when i got it. I saw on a Dji tutorial film once that the compass value range
    Should be around 1400 - 1600. I check this regularly and it's always around the 1450 - 1560.
    I have taken my phantom to many locations even to Italy and i live in The Netherlands. I never recalibrated the compass ever but i also never experienced any strange flight issues. I also read a lot about people having problems with J-hooks and TBE. Never experienced anything like that!

    My question: Is there anyone how can tell me what these compass values mean and i they change if you recal on a different location? Because i get the feeling that if it is between 1400 - 1600 or so it doesnt matter where you are at least not in Europe?

    A bit of a long story i know. Thanks!
