    Does anyone know what hidden functions exist on the phantom 3 standard controller? For example, if you flip the S1 switch five times it will allow you to calibrate the compass. You can watch the lights as you do the dance. There is also flipping switch S2 three times and turning the camera tilt wheel left to bind the aircraft to a controller. It seems the drone can count flips and that opens lots of possibilities.

    I would like to know if there are other functions which are possible like calibrating the IMU or setting up the home point. If anyone has discovered any, please post them.

    Flip S2 to RTH. Flip S1 to cancel RTH.
    That's all I use to initiate RTH

    What about setting home point for RTH?

    Thank you for the video. I have seen this video before and have noticed that it does not describe the compass calibration procedure using the S1 switch toggled five times. Therefore I assumed, and maybe hoped, that there were other functions available which others might have discovered.
