    Can you help please. I have a Phantom 2 V + and use the Naza mode. When I do a compass calibration, I flick the switch, spin around once with the P2 in a horizontal position and then spin once in a vertical position, all is well but if I spin twice in a vertical position the lights flicker red and just stay flickering red, they do not change.
    I am confused. Any comments?

    Why would you spin twice in the vertical position? Just spin once.

    I only spin once but I am inquisitive as to why it flashes red continuously when I spin twice.

    Flashing different colour lights is the way it communicates.
    If it had a mouth, it would tell you.
    If it had an arm that would reach, it would slap you :)

    Yep manual says spin once flip face down and turn once. Kind of cool that that works and you found twice doesn't. I found out the same thing where the manual says dont fly into trees. Two new props! Now I know too!

    Counter in the northern hemisphere and Clockwise in the southern hemisphere. Those on the equator need to double check.



    Kidding... direction does not matter..
    Just make sure you do it high as possible. The P3 manual says to do it above 1.5 meters. There is a chance of interference if too close to ground.
