    I have been trying to fly indoors, but keep getting a compass calibration error. what is the best way to fly indoors in a building with lots of electrical and metal, would disconnecting the compass be the best way, I do not need gps hold, only atti mode.

    thanks

    I haven't flown indoors with the P3.
    But I am sure that VPS enabled with the P-opti (position hold optical) mode should work provided you are less than 3m high on an a light and sound reflective distinguishable surface.

    i'm not worried about the position hold, i'm more worried about the compass deciding the drone needs to go a certain way if there is intereference.
