    My P2 with H3-3D/FPV setup has been displaying significant TBE and J-hook lately; however, I'm in area with low magnetic declination Atlanta, Ga. When calibrating the IMU I noticed some of the numbers (COMPASS MOD = 459) seem to be off compared to other results seen here and elsewhere. I'm beginning to believe that the compass module is bad, I hope that some one can take a look at my numbers and let me know if they are out of whack.

    If compass ( MOD ) value is BELOW ( 700 )
    It is WAY OFF!

    I recommend RESETING COMPASS!

    I thought that might be the problem and I will try resetting the compass tonight. It has been like flying a tank recently.

    Thanks for the information.
