    My p3p had 1.6 and then i upgraded to 1.8 and 1.9 . Soon after i updated to 1.8 i noticed its switching in between p mode and atti mode and after upgrading to 1.9 i still saw the same problem. Today i went to fly it after making sure the error message is gone away and i did a compass calibration before my flight. There were no magnetic interference or powerlines around. And suddenly i noticed the drone is not stable and compass error. On the status i see everything normal but in camera view i see the compass error. Can you please help ???

    Nothing about a firmware update shpoul affect your compass. The problem is most likely related to where you recalibrated. Any reinforced concrete there? Try again somewhere else

    It isn't the firmware it is the location of you calibration. Or you had It close to metal. Where did you calibrate?
