Yes, it does look silly to see someone spinning in the middle of a field, lake front, beach, etc while holding a quadcopter but here's why I do it every time regardless if I just flew there the previous day. Unfortunately, I live in an area where I can't step off my back porch and take off. If I did then I probably would not compass boogie every time. However, I need to load all my "stuff" into the hatch of my car and travel to the field of the day. I learned the hard way that putting your quad between two 4" speaker magnets tends to do funny things to the compass. I won't get into the nitty-gritty details but my experience is that the two don't mix and you should always do the hustle when you get to where ever it is that you are driving. Thirty seconds of insurance is all it takes. And btw, baba booey, baba booey howard stern. That is all.
