Does IMU Calibration really change the Compass values?

    I've been trying to perform the Advanced IMU Calibration after having a bad TBE occur... but
    noticed that despite doing IMU Calibrations (basic and advanced), the values of the Compass X,Y,Z and Mod really don't change much. I do notice that the Gyro and Acceleration do calibrate out though.

    Does anyone else notice that the Compass numbers don't really change much after going thru the IMU calibration?

    The compass sensor is the one on the Phantom's rear right leg and the IMU sensors are in the little box inside the Phantom which is the NAZA Flight Controller. IMU calibration has nothing to do with the compass sensor. That's what you have the compass calibration for.

    Ahhh. This has been confusing because the Compass calibration data is shown in the IMU calibration settings area in the Phantom Assistant.
