    Another shake down flight after calibrating everying. First part of the flight went well, near the end I started getting compass errors which would reset themselves. Uploaded the file to healthy drones, but I can't find anything related to the compass warnings...perhaps its buried in the file.

    I've noticed the P3 A has a pretty aggressive response in the roll, pitch, and yaw when flying in GPS P mode, this is what I'm thinking is the cause of the errors.

    General comment of the FPV with an iPad: You can't see ****.

    I noticed that latest update has resulted into increased sensitivity for compass and we keep getting such errors which we were blind to them earlier. I hope these messages are correct and point to some disturbing element that is affecting compass. Right now we are not aware why such messages are increasingly available but hope we find the reason soon

    Only suggestion is to fly at other location and check all possibilities of incorrect calibration.
