    You have magnetic or ferrous metal interference. Maybe the soil has ferrous metal content.

    I wouldn't calibrate if previously you had a good calibration unless you have traveled hundreds of kilometers from where you last calibrated.

    The soil is probably or rock on that island may contain ferrous metal.

    If he gets a compass error and trys to fly it, you may be telling him invite disaster-- so be careful of what you recommend.:)

    If you don't have a compass error-- you may need to do an IMU calibration -- you can check the IMU in the app. Have you done one since you have had the Phantom??

    Fly it close in and see if it settles down-- it should be ok it the Compass Mod shows around 1500-- be sure you have it in GPS mode-- It will say Safe to Fly GPS-- it if is in Atti mode-- you have to fly it and it wont be as stable.

    Yes, so fly it in the GPS mode as long as you don't have a compass error when you start

    It's risky even trying to fly it.. I wouldn't even attempt it.
