    Thanks for the video, i was just wondering why the nose or the front of the phantom has to be on the bottom on the second part of the dance, if i have itupwards will it interefere with calibration, would it fly bad?

    Not really sure. But what I do know is that the compass is directionally sensitive. On my first days with the Phantom I was turning clockwise (instead of counter-clockwise) and I was wondering why the calibration kept failing. So I guess the Phantom knows it's orientation all the time.

    Hope that helps! :?
