    Hello guys, this is a question that I can't seems to be able to find out by myself.

    Should I calibrate every single flight?
    Today is gonna be my 4 flight, is always in my backyard, I a huge open space for flying the bird, so I need to calibrate?

    Do we actually need a poll to answer this question?

    The Phantom manual states otherwise though.

    "Always calibrate the compass in every new flight location."

    Unfortunately DJI's phone people are not very good sources of authoritative information.
    There are several cases of them providing incorrect information.
