    Since there is mention of setting new home in flight (S2 switch) Has anyone accidentally flipped the wrong switch back and forth initiating compass calibration? Just curious if this would cause catastrophic tumble or fly away. And why and the heck is the right switch S1?

    Pretty sure that can't happen. The Naza knows if it is on the ground or in the air.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    You can't calibrate the compass with the motors running.
