    I have seen many videos on how to make compass calibration but must i waits for the phantom to start find satellites and get a home lock before i do the compass calibration? I did so when i did it but people in the videos just plug in the battery and than do a compass calibration.

    I have all ways just powered up then flicked the right switch up and down to start the compass set procedure before homelock, and then done the compass dance and then powered down and powered up again and never thought anything about it. But yea your right was is the correct thing to do, compass dance before home lock or after or does it not matter. ?
