    I always fly outside my house, except last weekend I was at the lake. Today I am outside my house, did the compass and the Home lock and for some odd reason the red arrow is now facing the opposite direction from normal. Any Idea why this might be so? Was it something I did when calibrating the compass or was it when setting home lock while hovering?

    (Facing North the arrow shows north when heading north, today it was opposite)

    Weird. I would try another compass dance, I might reinstall the app, and try another compass dance.

    I did the compass dance again and it did correct it. I believe it must be the way you start the compass dance. I must of had the battery opposite me the time it was incorrect.
