    Do i need to re-calibrate the dji phantom 2 vision plus when I change batteries, or does it remember the last calibration?

    Thanks!

    The manual describes the interval recommendations for the compass compensation.

    As far as other calibrations (IMU) you should frequently connect the a/c to the Assistant software and it will evaluate that for you unless you have had a crash or added, removed, or relocated equipment internally.

    Rule of thumb:

    Recalibrate whenever anything changes on your Phantom, or in its environment. If you always fly at the same sight, calibrate once at the site, and then occasionally thereafter. If you fly at different sites, recalibrate whenever you fly at a site that's different to the last one.

    You'll know if you need to do a compass calibration in that the Phantom won't hover in one position; it'll persistently drift away in one particular direction.
