    Hi everyone

    I am now getting a #27 error in the assistant software and my phantom wont go into GPS mode.

    Does anyone have a fix for me to try?

    Sounds like [excessive] compass error.

    Have you tried to re-calibrate the compass yet?

    If the calibration alone doesn't work you could try demagnatizing it.

    You can find videos on YouTube (dji compass demagnetization) showing the steps.

    Set it on a level surface away from metal.

    A kitchen counter, over a dishwasher will usually give this error. As will a stove top, metal counter, tool box, car hod, roof or trunk.

    If none of the above, the GPS board may have become unplugged from the NAZA, or the Compass unplugged on leg or GPS board.

    If all OK there, it could be a cracked GPS antenna or bad GPS board.

    There may be other reasons..

    Thank you guys. I will look at it tonight. I feel like the P2 is just doing some weird things. For example, the Gimbal is not reacting to the tilt lever now and in my FPV screen (using Mini iOSD) down in the lower left corner underneath the control mode, it is displaying what look like a paint roller brush?? I can not any reference of what this icon means?

    Any help with this would be great!!

    Thanks!!
