    Try calibrating the Sammy compass.

    Airplane mode means your phone won't receive phone calls while you're trying to fly your UAV

    Same to ya, ;)

    Sorry man, that title could be misleading, this was recent that the mobiles compass was off and the Phantom wasn't being displayed in what some people call the radar window on the app.
    :rolleyes:

    works as a band aid but is not a solution.

    much better to solve the issue and then have options when needed..
    my opinion anyhow.
