    P4P Compass Error

    My P4P had a hard drop while in the carrying case and now has compass error message. Re-calibrating several times does nothing. From reading here DJI will most likely return a different bird. Is there a non-DJI repair option available that has good reviews? Thanks

    P4 Advanced Authorization Zone Mid Flight & Compass Error

    I thought I'd post a situation that happened to me a few weeks ago in case someone else has had the same issue out there. I'm completely disappointed in the new firmware and how it has been programmed to handle Authorization Zone situations. The first flight was great. Hours after purchasing...

    Have you encountered compass errors with Litchi app?

    I'm trying to determine if this dreaded mid air compass errors are just for DJI GO app. I would like to hear from users using Litchi app. I may as well switch to Litchi if there are no issues with compass errors. That seems to be a cheaper and safer alternative solution than dealing with DJI...
