    What happens if compass goes out of order during flight?
    A.What happens if Phantom is in GPS mode during "compass failure"?
    B.What happens if Phantom is in ATTI mode during "compass failure"?

    It's my understanding that in GPS mode the Phantom will behave erratically at best depending on the compass failure type. If it's a total loss of compass output then that wouldn't be too bad, but erratic/intermittent/offset values would be BAD.

    ATT should be unaffected.

    IOC will be useless.
