Pull_Up wrote:Only the once, after I calibrated in a stupid place with most of the things you avoided right near it. I've seen two schools of compass dance. The "official" way (as espoused by DJI's Colin in the latest "how to fly your Vision" video) is to just hold it up off the ground a bit, keep it level-ish, rotate it in your hands in one axis, then the other. I've also see people grip their phantom by the legs whilst holding at arm's length and rotate themselves around, flip the phantom so holding by the bottom of the skids and then do the whole pirouette at arm's length again for the other axis.
The latter would seem to guarantee a smoother, more level rotation, but you're not doing it around the actual axis of the craft. I don't know how sensitive the compass is to being out of vertical/horizontal and whether that even matters much...

I am all booted up and connected but for one problem -- i can not get the phantom to enter compass calibration mode. s1 switch (the right side toggle switch) up and down 10 times -- nothing happens, and i still have blinking yellow or blinking green indicator lights.
What am i doing wrong? Thanks
