    Not sure if the fact that it's a tiny car means that the phantom will be too close to the car's speakers. Is this an issues if the phantom is not in a case? Will it mess up the compass?

    But--------could be a problem. Recalibrate when on site perhaps.

    simple answer is yes. if you distance you travel is more than 1 deg difference in declination, you might want to think about doing a compass dance. Other than that. Stick it in your smart and have fun.

    All the best

    Thanks all. From everyone I have spoken with, it sounds like speaker magnetism throwing off other compass isn't a real concern.

    Don't use the car's sound system - it's OK to have it quiet once in a while.
