    So I've noticed while calibrating the compass that on the second phase the picture doesn't show the Phantom 4 nose facing down. It shows it facing sideways. Do I calibrate with nose down as that is what I've read and seen on multiple videos or with the camera facing sideways like the illustration shows? Thanks

    I have been holding it facing sideways on the second phase. Oooops.

    I was confused also on this. Watching multiple videos of people calibrating both ways with success still didn't let me know what was recommended from factory other than the direction shown from the Go App. I'll stick with that.

    Thanks Dinerve. I'll go with the face down method from now on because of the odd gimble movements a sideways calibration causes.
