    Is this error telling me to do normal calibration? (Flick S1 5x, spin around in a circle, twist it, spin again)

    Or is telling me to do basic IMU calibration? Or advanced calibration?

    Thanks!

    Compass - what you are calling normal.

    Sometimes that msg shows if you try to start the Phantom on something with a lot of metal like concrete with reinforcing inside or a car roof.
    If that is the cause, just power down and start again in a better location.

    It says compass calibration therefore it is asking you to do the dance with the phantom. Just note that ferromagnetic and/or magnetic materials in the vicinity of the phantom can throw the compass off which could result in such a message.
