    On my orientation screen , bottom left on camera view, the direction of the nose of the phantom with flight forward towards the controller does not correlate to the actual flight, despite compass calibration. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    You may have to calibrate the compass in your phone or tablet as well.

    Shake your tablet/phon in any direction even if it's already on the rc, you'll see the arrow pointing where the phantom nose is.

    Thanks marzipana and StevenQX. Tried both suggestions without success. Despite pointing directly at me/ the transmitter, the phantom orientation remains pointing at a 90 degree angle away from the white transmitter marker on the screen
